Codilis & Associates understands the importance of bilingual business interactions.

Prioritizing customer service, Codilis & Associates counts on its employees to communicate with Spanish-speaking clients.

Throughout the United States, many individuals struggle with English but speak fluent Spanish. Hailing from Mexico, Cuba, Argentina, Chile, Spain, and other regions, these people make up a growing portion of the workforce and overall population. Between 10 and 15 percent of the United States population speaks Spanish. Considering this statistic, many businesses hire bilingual employees in order to enhance communication with Spanish-speaking customers.

As businesses expand internationally and technology connects all corners of the world, the need for cross-cultural communication makes bilingual education increasingly necessary. Children under the age of nine have an incredible ability to learn foreign languages quickly and effectively. Students who receive bilingual or multilingual education during their elementary schooling often find it easier to learn multiple languages and are more likely to succeed in language comprehension later in life. Exposure to foreign languages also enhances learning in various other subjects. In many schools across the world, English is a required field of study, and many individuals from countries such as the Netherlands, Spain, and China have spoken English as a second language since childhood.

Following in the steps of numerous countries around the world, businesses and educational institutions in the United States can only benefit from the integration and application of bilingual practices and multicultural recognition.
