MADISON, Wis., May 12 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Pronto Spanish has announced the release today of their “Spanish for the Workplace Online” series — the first on-line Spanish series devoted entirely to learning the basics of conversational Spanish to use at one’s job. These 11 interactive courses focus on conversation, incorporates visual images, audio, language tips, dialogues, pronunciation guides, and mini-assessments. No previous Spanish knowledge is necessary — simply a need and desire to communicate a few basic Spanish words and phrases to your co-workers.
“Most people want to learn basic communication phrases for use at their workplace-not how to catch a taxi in Madrid or the difference between indirect and direct object pronouns,” says Tara Bradley Williams, president of Pronto Spanish and developer of the new “Spanish for the Workplace Online” series. “Many wonderful on-line Spanish courses and textbooks are in the marketplace, but they are designed for travelers or are filled with complicated grammar explanations directed toward linguists. These Spanish courses are designed for bridging the communication gap specifically in the workplace.”
In addition to such basics as Spanish greetings, numbers, directions, and time, the “Spanish for the Workplace” series includes lessons and vocabulary tailored especially for the industry used at the worksite. Currently, the online occupational-specific Spanish courses are available for the following industries: Banking, Construction, Educators, Food Service, Health Care, Hospitality, Human Resources, Law Enforcement, Manufacturing, and Social Services.
The courses, retailing for $99, are self-paced with unlimited access for 6 months and can be purchased at http://www.prontospanish.com or through your local community college. For more information about these on-line occupational Spanish courses, other occupational Pronto Spanish print materials, or to try a sample lesson, please visit http://www.prontospanish.com.
