Spanish in Edmonton
Why learn Spanish in Edmonton? Edmonton, the capital of Alberta and home to the world's third-largest oil sands reserve, is an urban metropolis teeming with industrial, economic, and financial opportunities. Boasting a population of 1.8 million people in the metropolitan area as of 2017, Edmonton is Canada's sixth largest city. As Canada solidifies its position in the global marketplace, establishing free trade agreements with the EU in 2017 and several Pacific nations in 2018, ties with Latin American countries such as Mexico, Chile, Costa Rica, Colombia, and Peru are becoming increasingly more important. In a growing international city, learning Spanish, the most-widely spoken language in the world, second only to Chinese, and the language of these emerging Latin American economies, will help connect Edmonton natives to Spanish-speaking businesses and markets.
As a trading nation, the exporting business is much of the driving force behind Canada's economy. Alberta is one of the 3 main exporting provinces in Canada as a whole and almost 7% of all Canadian export companies have the Latin American market as a destination—giving those who speak Spanish a competitive edge. Business endeavours, however, are not the only reason to learn Spanish. Data collected by Statistics Canada in 2017 listed Mexico as the second-most travelled to destination after the United States, followed by Cuba, and the Dominican Republic. In fact, as of 2018, there are now non-stop flights from Edmonton to cities within these 3 Spanish-speaking countries, with trends expected to grow in the coming years. Taking Spanish courses in Edmonton in preparation for your travels will allow you to communicate with native Spanish speakers and therefore enhance your experiences abroad and create connections you never thought possible.
Renowned as Canada's “Festival City", Edmonton plays host to 19 festivals on an annual-basis. While the native Spanish-speaking population is just shy of 20,000 as of 2017, a minority in comparison to other language communities in Edmonton, there are countless salsatecas, restaurants, cultural centres, and even radio stations for native Spanish speakers and learners to enjoy. The 2017 Edmonton Latin Festival—a vibrant, energetic, outdoor celebration that happens every August featuring international live musical artists and dancers, savory authentic food, and an artisan market—brought in thousands of attendees over its 2-day period and has become a staple in Edmonton’s summer festival agenda. From the Latino Canadian Chamber of Commerce to the Edmonton Hispanic Heritage Society or any number of other cultural institutions, there’s always something going on. Taking Spanish lessons in Edmonton is a fantastic way to interact with native Spanish speakers in the community and partake in the many various Hispanic-heritage celebrations that go on.
In a survey by the National Foreign Language Centre of 2,100 HR departments, a whopping 93% of employers admitted to favouring those who speak another language.
