Learn real-world, relevant language skills to communicate with Spanish speakers in our community. Discover tricks and tips for picking up Spanish fast! Emphasis is on learning useful phrases and vocabulary, which we practice in class through small groups and engaging exercises to develop ability and confidence. No previous Spanish language instruction necessary.
For students who have at least a small foundation of Spanish study, we build up our skills to have more in-depth and complex conversations. Working with vocabulary and phrases necessary for all kinds of situations, we expand our abilities to engage in real world conversations such as might occur while traveling, while interacting with clients, employees or simply chatting with a Spanish-speaking neighbor.
Geared specifically for health care professionals, we learn relevant vocabulary, practice essential phrases, and develop the confidence to inform, assist and gather information from Spanish-speaking clients and patients. Cultural issues related to health care are also covered. Previous basic Spanish experience/training is helpful but not required.
