Reasons for Learning Spanish

by Chief Spanish Learner on October 23, 2010

One of the nice touches that my web designer, Kirsten Wright, added to this website was asking folks downloading our free trial offer, why they were interested in learning Spanish. I wouldn’t have thought to ask.

The answers are both interesting and motivating. Interesting — in their variation. Motivating because of the strong desire, even need that people have to learn Spanish, which motivates me to offer more products and services.

So here is a sampling of some of the reasons people gave:

I’m a student

I’m a teacher

I’ve been learning Spanish off and on for almost 10 years now. I have a
Spanish-learning program, but hardly have time to sit at my computer after work.
I have a long drive to and from work, and looking for something to help with my
pronunciation and speech recognition as I drive.
