When planning out careers, many people choose to study a subject or path that coincides directly with what they aspire to be, such as an engineer, teacher or journalist. Children often grow up believing that as students, they should be focused solely on learning about what it is they have envisioned for themselves as careers. What people should not forget about, and what they should also value, is learning languages.

In today’s global economy and connected world, it is near imperative to speak at least two languages proficiently. Many individuals entering the job market or starting careers are prepared for the global marketplace and have studied to the point of fluency a couple or more languages. Many employers look to see whether a potential candidate is bilingual. While it might not rule some individuals out of certain jobs, those who boast bilingualism, or are trilingual or more, often see wage or salary boosts because of their language skills. Many people, however, find it difficult to learn a new language. For those in Europe, St George International is a language school that offers a variety of language courses.

Through St George International, students can have the opportunity to study foreign languages one-on-one with a tutor or in an academic class setting, all of which can take place in the European country where the language is spoken. This way, students can learn the language in an academic setting, and then go out in the city to practice what they are learning while on the street or with friends. This immersion reinforces what students are learning and gives them a full, well-rounded learning environment. All SGI teachers, across all European countries where they are based, are native speakers. With SGI, students can learn Spanish in Spain, French in France, Italian and Italy and German in Germany. Cities where St George International operates partner schools include Barcelona, Salamanca, Madrid, Malaga, Montpellier, Nice, Paris, Vichy, Florence, Milan, Rome, Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich. Students can take St Georges French courses or St Georges Spanish courses.
