Learn The Spanish Language

Real Estate Agent with Champions Real Estate Group

I wrote last week about my flare for international dishes. I am a natural knowledge hog, I like learning. One of the things that really interests me is culture and languages. Maybe having lived in different countries and having worked with different nationalities fed that interest more. I've worked with French, British, Indian, Dutch, Lebanese, Pakistanis. I enjoy listening to these foreign languages and marvel at their sound. I regretted not trying to learn more Arabic when I lived in the Middle East so now I resolved to learn Spanish, the other language I hear more often here in Houston. 

Being in real estate, sometimes I am just overwhelmed by the it's many facets. There are so many things to keep up with, and many areas of expertise you could pursue. I made it my goal to learn the Spanish language this year to reach out to the Hispanic market.

I think in my business, effective and proper communication is essential. I'm now on Level 1 with Visual Link Spanish & I am liking the result so far. It is very encouraging to the learning process when you can actually speak a number of sentences, yes sentences in the Spanish language, in just 1 week! I thought that was just a sales pitch until it actually worked for me. Of course, results may vary depending on the amount of effort one put into it, but I see that this particular Spanish language program has a very good approach in teaching the language.

If you are considering learning Spanish for whatever reason, you might want to check out this website. And in the same token, if I you need a real estate professional who will look out for your best interest in your real estate transaction in Houston, please visit my website. You can leave out the learning in real estate when you work with me.

Good idea in today's culture and depending on where you live learning another language can increase your business.  ~ Susan

I agree that learning Spanish is helpful where many of us live (in the San Francisco Bay Area in my case).  I tried a CD program from some other company a couple of years ago, and though I became proficient about asking where to buy train tickets and what gate my flight was at, I didn't have the patience to get to the part where I could ask people what brought them in to the Open House today.  I'm going to check out the web site you have recommended.

Hi Wende! As I mentioned, I'm on Level 1 on this Program, finished Basic Needs and Greetings, so far so good; so I hope it works out for you as well. One of my Hispanic clients actually encouraged me to learn, it was in my plans, and so I finally pursued it. I hope to be really proficient soon. As in any studies, it takes time and patience but I think the pay-off will be beyond the cost to do it.
