Montgomery College’s certified trainer and Command Spanish® materials have already helped numerous technicians, police officers, RNs, plant supervisors, and adult leisure learners who need Spanish to communicate with co-workers, neighbors, and other community members.
Vianney Jenson, certified trainer and continuing education instructor at Montgomery College, offered her insight on the Command Spanish® program.
“My students learn direct commands, questions, and simple statements to relay directions and information,” she said. “Cultural components are integrated into each session. This is real-world, speak-it-now Spanish for working people. Best of all, the program is easy, fun, and quick, and no prior knowledge of Spanish is required.”
The 18-hour “Community Spanish” class is set to begin Tuesday, October 9, meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays until November 6 in building A, room A110. The course, which runs from 1:30-3:30 p.m., teaches Spanish pronunciation, introductions, numbers, compliments, giving directions, and traditions. Tuition is $92, and participants must bring a check for $25 for the training manual with two practice CDs.
According to Stephen Koszewski, program manager, “This training is useful for anyone who needs Spanish in their occupation. It will promote a better work environment, enhance workers job performance, and provide better services to the Spanish-speaking community. Best of all, it can be customized for medical office staff, construction, manufacturing, teachers, customer service and other professions.”
