Knowing the second most-widely spoken language in the world will surely fetch you some brownie points in your career and also help you while you are traveling to countries where people understand Spanish better than English! Opting for a Spanish language course abroad will help you to immerse yourself in their culture and help you to fluently converse with the natives. This is your chance to work on your vocabulary and learn more than 'Hola' and 'Gracias'. You can pick any length of study ranging from as short as a week up to a period of months. Club it up with volunteering work or adventure tours, and make the most of your gap year abroad.
