Your First Business Trip to a Spanish Speaking Country

Are you traveling as a representative for your company or visiting your own new clients in Latino America or Spain?

At SpanishNYC, we understand that sometimes it might be overwhelming to arrive in a country where everyone around is talking a foreign language and you have no idea what is going on. Wouldn’t it be great if you had enough language survival skills to understand and communicate in Spanish the moment you arrive? We often help beginners become proficient. The best strategy is to teach what the student needs to learn, because they are basic conversational tools of the Spanish that they most often and likely use when traveling to Latin America and speaking Spanish.

Let’s be realistic. Understanding a new language, especially for use in public and crowd places, can be very difficult for students, even advanced learners shy away from talking to crowds in another language. However, did you know that there are typical sentences that people use in everyday situations and interactions with locals that can make your business trip much more relaxing and enjoyable? Foreigners, and especially Latino people, appreciate the effort given to express oneself in Spanish while trying to learn Español. Just listening to you doing it creates a more friendly and more positive atmosphere that ‘breaks the ice’ and creates a better emotional environment to achieve your business and personal goals.

We Teach You What You Need to Know First – in Spanish

We will help you understand what you need to know first, so that you start using the essential phrases and expressions, when traveling or conducting business meetings in Spanish, right away. Don’t worry, the lessons are much more involved than “dónde está el baño?”. With our First Business Trip to a Spanish Speaking Country lesson, you will learn how to introduce yourself, both formally and informally, how talk about your specific business objectives, and why you are interested in doing business abroad. You will learn how to get around with ease when you are with business clients, we will teach you how to ask about local matters including, places for sightseeing, restaurants, historic sites and how to make use of city services.
