SPANISH FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT
With more and more Spanish-speaking people living in the United States every year, learning the Spanish language is becoming ever more importantâespecially in the field of law enforcement, where clear and quick communication is crucial. Mastering basic Spanish will give you more power to handle situations involving Spanish-speaking victims, witnesses, or criminals. It's a smart career move as well, because adding Spanish skills to your rÃ©sumÃ© can open the door to new job opportunities.
Whether you're new to the Spanish language or just want a refresher, this course will teach you the basic Spanish phrases you need for everything from making casual conversation to handling life-or-death situations. You'll start with simple vocabulary for everyday topics including colors, numbers, conversational phrases, family names, and words for asking questions. Next, you'll learn Spanish terminology you can use during arrests, traffic stops, medical emergencies, and many other common law enforcement situations.
In this course, you'll focus specifically on Spanish for law enforcement personnel, skipping the "touristy" phrases you don't need to know. And to make your learning easy and painless, the course is sprinkled with fun games and stories. So if you're having flashbacks to your boring high school Spanish class, don't worryâyou can learn Spanish and have fun at the same time.
