Command Spanish

Employers and managers, would Spanish-speaking skills help your staff be more productive?

What is Command Spanish?

Command Spanish is real-world, rapid-results Spanish language training designed for the workplace. The classes are learner-friendly, grammar-free, easy, fun and quick. It focuses on giving you the specific commands, questions, and phrases you need on the job. Command Spanish training also generates better cultural awareness, enhances workplace safety and boosts job performance and employee morale.

How does it work?

Whether you have supervisors of Spanish speakers or employees whose duties require communicating with Spanish speakers, you can take advantage of this innovative training. All programs incorporate careful research, on-the-job shadowing and review by occupational practitioners and native Spanish speakers. This instruction does not take the place of formal, grammar-based Spanish classes. This is survival Spanish for specific professions and focuses completely on typical phrases used on the job.

Here are just a few of the many industries that can benefit from Command Spanish:

  • banking
  • construction
  • criminal justice
  • education
  • fire/rescue
  • food service
  • healthcare—medical and dental
  • hospitality
  • landscaping
  • law enforcement
  • manufacturing
  • restaurant
  • retail
  • secretarial
  • travel
  • warehousing

The training can be offered at your site or ours. Your enrollment includes a language binder and a CD. Timing is based on your specific needs.
