Benefits of learning another language

A COMPETITIVE EDGE:

Do you want to stand out from the crowd? Do you want to have a better chance of employment? If you do, then learning or perfecting a second language is a brilliant way of doing so! Today’s economy is truly global and the easier you can communicate with workers around the world the more valuable you will be to a company. No matter what career you pursue, if you have the ability to use more than one language will find increased opportunities for work, travel and cultural exchange!

CULTURAL AWARENESS:

Being culturally aware is something to aspire to. Learning another language through newspapers, books, films and conversations can help immerse you in the culture and traditions of another country. This can give you a unique insight into another culture, increasing your understanding and tolerance and affording you a whole new perspective on life. Sharing your own culture with others through the use of a mutual language can open a world of new connections and opportunities. The more culturally aware you are the better your prospects!

THE JOY OF TRAVEL:

AbbyOk, seems fairly straightforward, but ultimately learning a new language will truly open up the world to you! Not only will you be a more confident traveler, but you will be able to access so much more than those without language skills. You will be able to communicate with the locals, gain insider knowledge of the best places to go, negotiate like a pro and be able to participate fully instead of being on the side-lines! Traveling with good language skills really is a whole different ball game!

INNOVATIVE LEARNING:

Learning a language can be one of the hardest things you do, but ultimately one of the most rewarding. Perseverance is key, but language training can also open you up to new techniques and ways of learning that can help in other areas of your life. Group exercises, cultural immersion, speaking/listening games can all be useful when preparing for other skills!

We offer you Spanish language courses with some of the best language schools in Spain to help improve your Spanish communication skills. Our Spanish language packages are available in Valencia and Seville.

    This experience have been really positive for me. I have learned how to live independently, how to value a lot of things (a job, a weekend, to do the shopping, to save money, to spend money in a responsible way, etc.). I also have demonstrated to myself that I am a professional and that I enjoy teaching a lot. Now I know that I am qualified to be a teacher in a different country with a different language. I recommend this programme for everybody because it is fantastic!

  • Asisa

    (Kronach, Germany)

    First of all, I really love Cork! The people are very nice and friendly. My placement was with a very cool and friendly company as well. I enjoyed the time with my cool colleagues and boss! My work was familiar to me because I translated documents like I am learning in Germany. I would recommend an internship in Cork for every student because it is worth it. You improve your language skills and learn the culture. The Irish accent is also very cool but funny as well! So, I really enjoyed my time here. Thank you Partnership International!

    (Berlin, Germany)

    With my internship, organised by Partnership International, I got to visit many different Irish companies and was involved with introducing international students to them. I was also involved with inductions and orientations for foreign students. My work also included office administration. My colleagues were really nice so the working experience was very good. And I got to see a bit of Ireland while there. I’ve been to the Cliffs of Moher, a whiskey distillery, a falconry and many places more. So, overall it was a great experience and I would totally recommend it!

    (Czech Republic)

    Ireland is an absolutely nice country, people are very kind and friendly, the nature is beautiful even if the weather is not as good as you’d expect. I lived in the city of Cork. It’s not so big but it’s really nice and you cannot get lost there.

    I got this opportunity thanks to Partnership International. I worked in Cork for a month and I can say it was the best practical training which I ever had.

  • Christian

    (Berlin, Germany)

    So after all, I have to say it was an absolutely great opportunity to get to know a new country/city, people and to make an intercultural experience. I am lucky that Partnership International organised everything so well and that they were hands-on to their students the entire trip. Thanks very much for everything and keep doing what you are doing! It will definitely not be my last time in Ireland and you helped me to open new ways! Cheers!

    (Spain)

    I really liked doing an internship in Cork for 3 months. In fact, I’m going to stay here another 3 months (the company where I did the internship hired me!). The city is nice and everybody is very kind, friendly and open-minded. The worst for me, as Spanish, is the weather and the prices. My English is improving a lot and I travelled around this awesome island, so I think as a vital experience it was perfect. I’ve made a great decision taking this internship with Partnership International, the welcome was excellent as was the company where I did my internship.

  • Laura

    (Bordeaux, France)

    My internship has given me the opportunity to learn a lot and to improve my professional skills in a foreign language. It was a great opportunity for me to gain practical skills and work within a professional team. The lessons I learned as an intern are still with me today and I’m thankful to all the team of Partnership International who were a real pleasure to deal with. I would recommend an experience like this to everyone.
