About the Event
FITUR Lingua was created to provide a space for the language tourism product at the International Tourism Fair in Madrid. This space, created by FITUR in collaboration with FEDELE and its federated centres, presents this tourism product and the possibilities for operators, companies, and institutions to grow within it.
As a first step in the creation of a sector specializing in this type of tourism at FITUR, this year we are proposing an approach to the sector where FEDELE will present economic data, strategies, and actions to attract students to our country.
The Importance of Language Tourism
Language tourism is defined by institutions such as the World Tourism Organization and Turespaña as those activities that people carry out in another country, whose main purpose is to learn the language of the place they are visiting, and which are complemented by many other activities of a social and cultural nature in the destination.
Spanish is spoken by a total of 580 million people, 7.6 % of the world’s population (according to data from the Instituto Cervantes annual directory), making it the second language of international communication. It is the third language on the Internet, where it has great potential, and is also studied by 22 million people in 110 countries (although it is estimated that the real demand is 25% higher).
