Spanish in Halifax, NS

Why learn Spanish in Halifax? As the most populated city in Nova Scotia, Halifax hosts a growing Spanish-speaking community. With a significant increase in population of over 31% from 2011 to 2018, 1 out of 22 citizens in the Nova Scotia region can speak Spanish. Linguistically and culturally, Spanish influence can be found dotted within Canadian society and history. Whilst the Spanish did not settle in North America immediately, Canada today boasts a strong Latin-American community which, in 2017, had an estimated population of over 447,000.

Spanish culture and the Spanish language therefore play important roles in modern-day Halifax. An example of this is the Latispánica Cultural Association in Nova Scotia, which leads events such as the “Zumba Fiesta”, targeted to people of all backgrounds and ethnicities to celebrate Hispanic culture and heritage. People can engage in classic song and dance in an authentic Latin atmosphere or attend masterclasses on Latin-American cooking. Taking Spanish lessons in Halifax gives you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself into this warm and passionate community. By learning to speak their language, you will be taking part in a truly exciting culture which continues to greatly contribute towards Canada’s multicultural identity.

Since 1994, Canada has also been establishing steady relations with Latin American countries, and more particularly with Mexico. In 2017, the two-way trade between the two nations amounted to $21.1 billion. Both nations, along with the USA, are part of the largest Free Trade region in the world. With Canada signing the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership on March 2018, which involves, among others, Mexico, Chile, and Peru, more and more Spanish-speaking countries will become important trade partners in the near future. Halifax, as a major economic centre of Atlantic Canada, will become a focal point for businesses. By taking Spanish classes in Halifax, you will be able to access all the potentials offered by the Spanish market, extending your business prospects on to a global scale, not just in Canada, but in South America, Europe, and beyond.

In an increasingly globalized economy, Spanish, as the second-most spoken native language in the world, is an essential asset. Fortunately, it is also one of the easiest languages for an English speaker to pick up, making it an attractive choice for beginners. Its accessibility makes it one of only 6 official languages used by the United Nations. Signing up to Spanish courses in Halifax gives you the opportunity to study this fantastic language in the comforts of your own home or wherever works best for you. Our native-speaking teachers will guide you to fluency with lessons tailored to meet your personal needs and goals.
