Spanish Basics are Different for Everyone


What are the Spanish basics you need to be more productive in your workplace? The answer is… it depends. The right way to learn (and teach) Spanish is to create a customized learning path based on a student’s industry, workplace demands, and language strategy goals. At Workplace Languages, our philosophy is to give individuals only what they need to be more productive, get their point across, and build rapport with others.

What Is Survival Spanish?

Because everyone’s needs are different, we offer an on-site Survival Spanish seminar that is built around a different approach to Spanish basics. We understand that in a business environment, no one wants to spend hours and hours conjugating verbs and memorizing long lists of vocabulary words. That type of Spanish basics course has its place in academia, but it’s really not useful in the workplace. Instead, our Survival Spanish course is a zero-stress learning experience that focuses on functional Spanish that can be used immediately. It does not teach grammar. It does not teach a bunch of Spanish words you’ll never use. It teaches you what you need to know in your work environment.

Why Implement Survival Spanish?

Survival Spanish participants learn functional Spanish basics that can be used immediately. The course is customized with Spanish phrases that are unique to your specific industry and workplace needs. Participants in the seminar report that they experience improved teamwork, increased morale, and better communication with their teammates. Businesses benefit, too, by increasing cost-effectiveness, productivity, and staff retention with improved understanding of the Spanish language.
