15 Reasons Why Speaking Spanish Makes You Sexy
Is Spanish the sexiest language? Could learning Spanish make you sexier? It’s definitely a possibility. It’s a language of romance, a language employed by so many of the great writers of yesterday, today and tomorrow. It’s the language of intimate dances and sultry music, the language of warm people and warm places and a culture unafraid of a little heat.
It’s not just sexy to speak Spanish, it’s also beneficial for the brain (which, we confess, is also sexy). As Yudhijit Bhattacharjee states in a 2012 NY Times op-ed, “Being bilingual, it turns out, makes you smarter. It can have a profound effect on your brain, improving cognitive skills not related to language…” So, for you Spanish speakers, here 15 reasons why speaking Spanish makes you sexy.
The Beginning of Something Beautiful
Speaking Spanish opens the door to learning the other romance languages. After Spanish, the sky’s the limit.
Spanish Words Just Sounds Sexy
At least for us, hearing te amo is more romantic than someone saying, I love you.
In part because of the tongue’s unique movements in your mouth as you speak, anything and everything you say when you speak Spanish sounds more romantic. It’s both sweet and sexy at the same time.
Travel the World
When you speak Spanish, you’re ready to travel to all of the Spanish speaking countries around the world (and there are a lot of them) with ease.
Read the Riches
When you can read and comprehend the Spanish language well, you can get lost in the poetry of Pablo Neruda or the works of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
Success = Sexy
With such a large Latino population in the United States, employers are desperate for people who are fluent in Spanish. You’re more inclined to get a better job and get promoted faster if you’re bilingual.
Better English? Yup!
Spanish words are derived from Latin and can boost your everyday English vocabulary, as well as proper sentence structure and verb conjugation. There’s not a whole lot sexier than having mastered two languages.
A Better Love Life
Your dating pool is much larger when you consider a partner whose primary language is not English.
Speaking Spanish means you can sing Spanish, which means you can sing along with the sexy Spanish songs on the radio.
You can watch foreign films without the subtitles, which is always a plus.
Take Control & Be More Decisive
A study from the University of Chicago found that using a foreign language made people less biased and more objective when it came to decision-making.
Smart is Sexy
Generally speaking, people who speak multiple languages are smarter, and they become that way as they get accustomed to working in two different language systems to communicate.
Why not live a sexy and mysterious life overseas for a few years? You can, you know, if you speak the language of the locals.
It’s been said that to know a language is to know a culture. Being able to adapt to and understand another culture makes you more open, fascinating, vibrant, and duh, sexier.
Become Someone Else
It is said that people experience a personality shift when speaking a different language. Why not change your hairstyle and slip into a sexy dress, making a promise to speak only Spanish for a night?
