Why is it important to know Spanish as a priest, seminarian or minister?
Being a bilingual priest, bilingual minister or bilingual seminarian is very important nowadays if you are looking to truly connect with your community.
By immersing yourself in Hispanic language and culture, you are better prepared to meet the daily opportunities for ministry in the growing Spanish-speaking population of your district.
Whether people need a consoling word in a hospital, directions to the pharmacy, or prayers for their children, you are better prepared to meet these needs.
After a total immersion program long enough to improve the fluency and vocabulary, participants might be able to even offer services in Spanish, what for Spanish speaking people is very valuable.
Despite the four hours of Spanish class every day, there are hundreds of little lessons to be learned by simply walking down the street and taking a bus to school. From the conversations with the local people to all the little daily lessons are invaluable to your education in the Spanish language.
You can consider the following programs: Group 4 Plus or One-on-One classes.
