Command Spanish is an occupational Spanish program that teaches

just the phrases one needs in one's job.  Command Spanish

incorporates techniques that teach specific occupational language

in a limited time period.  Instead of focusing on grammar-based

materials, Command Spanish materials utilize phonetic encoding,

a highly effective system that focuses on Spanish pronunciation.

Programs are available in the areas of medical personnel, nursing,

banking, business and industry, education, law enforcement, corrections

and probation, public safety, and many other specific occupations.


The goal is to help organizations make the most of their most valuable

resource –PEOPLE- by improving their performance. The focus is on

“tapping into the reservoir of talent and knowledge” that they have

and how they can apply that knowledge today. Getting your entire

organization involved and on the road to “putting the fun back in business”

is the goal. These seminars and workshops can be configured to meet

your organizations time frame and special needs.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Are You Listening to Me?

Calming the Angry Beast

Customer Service

Effective Communication
