The benefits of combining our Spanish courses with an internship!

There is no denying that doing an internship in your desired work field offers a multitude of benefits, both in a professional and personal aspect – having the chance to be able to work alongside professionals that teach you a range of new skills and knowledge are just one of the many benefits this experience can offer you.


Having said that, imagine being able to to combine two things: an internship in your selected field and one of our Spanish courses? This is something that EUROACE offers and we can guarantee that the benefits are countless.


Keep reading to find out of the top reasons to merge together both these services so you can get the most of one of our programs at EUROACE.



Enhance your communication skills

Arguably one of the most important skills to focus on and improve, communication skills are essential for professional development as well as communicating in different languages. The benefit of combining both an internship and Spanish classes is that you’ll constantly be engaging with colleagues, supervisors and clients in a professional setting, learning to articulate ideas clearly and effectively. The same goes for your Spanish classes, you’ll have the chance to interact with other classmates and your teacher and constantly be engaged in learning the language.


Another great skill you’ll improve is cross cultural communication, for example in diverse workplaces, interns always interact with individuals from different backgrounds, cultures, and communication styles, improving their ability to adapt their communication approach accordingly. Of course, if you do an internship in Valencia, where our group classes are based, it will be a great help if you’re able to communicate well in both your native language and in Spanish. Not only does this show initiative as you’re willing to immerse yourself in a new language, but it also opens up a range of opportunities career wise and professionally.



Make the most out of your time

Sometimes its easy to loose sight of an end goal or objective even if you’re fully engaged in an activity or project. A good way to avoid this is to make sure you divide your time meaningfully and there is no better way to do this than enrolling in a Spanish course alongside your internship commitments. Making sure you can always focus on something is a great way to constantly stimulate your brain and retain information quickly. After your internship has finished and you’ve had a break to regain your energy, you could join a Spanish class in the afternoon or even on your days off, doing this will always allow you to expand your learning.


Lets not forget that our Spanish classes are some of the most interactive and socially pleasing, we never just settle for a classroom setting, meaning that most of our students can enjoy classes on our roof terrace, in the central market or even on a day trip, making learning both fun and engaging. You may think that doing both an internship and classes is too much work but that really isn’t the case at our school. Our Spanish courses always put the individual needs of our students first but the most important thing is that we make them fun, you may even forget that you’re learning a new language in the first place!



Cultural competence and its importance

Language learning goes hand in hand with cultural understanding and this is something which is essential for effective collaboration in diverse work environments. By combining your classes with your internship you will be able to navigate cultural nuances and build stronger relationships with colleagues and clients from different backgrounds.


As time goes on, you’ll start to feel more comfortable in your internship and you’ll be able to form a deeper connection with your coworkers through everything you’ve learnt in your classes. By actively participating in these communication-rich environments such as classes, participants can develop and refine their verbal, written, and non-verbal communication skills, which are invaluable assets in any professional setting.


Overall, the synergy between practical work experience and language learning fosters both personal and professional growth. Having the opportunity to apply your language skills in a professional setting will both accelerate your proficiency in Spanish and also expand your job opportunities. What are you waiting for? You are just one small step away from finding a magical program that fits your every need!
