August 28, 2014 - By Maribel Ramirez

Spanish is becoming highly important with regards to business mainly in the healthcare profession. Learning Spanish will enable students to better communicate with Spanish speaking employees or co-workers. Hispanic consumers are the fastest-growing market segment. As for job opportunities, it certainly wouldn't hurt to have Spanish on your résumé.

In the United States, knowing Spanish can be particularly helpful if you work in healthcare or education. If you are bilingual, you will be more marketable and have more career choices than your monolingual counterpart. Globalization, with it's accompanying free trade agreements is shrinking the business world, and those who know more than one language will definitely have the edge.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics project’s a 22% increase for bilingual professionals by the year 2018.

•       The demand for bilingual Spanish-speaking healthcare workers continues to grow.
