Customize the Course to Fit the Needs of Your Group
Spanish that Works for You is an all-purpose course in basic communication in Spanish that can be instantly tailored to fit the needs of a group or profession by adding supplemental specialized vocabulary. The basic 16-hour curriculum can be expanded for more in-depth learning, or streamlined for introductory workshops. Teachers in a traditional academic setting may use Spanish that Works course materials to provide intensive speaking practice within the framework of their current program.
The supplemental Community Vocabulary module teaches food and basic places words, and is suitable for those wanting to communicate with Spanish speaking Latinos in both the U.S. or Canada as well as in Latin America. It has been used successfully by independent teachers, community organizations, and travelers. Churches use this module to prepare for mission trips to Latin America.
Specialty vocabulary modules are available for Library (librarians and library staff), School (teachers and school staff), and City Court (employees of the court).
Other organizations and professions may easily use the core materials as the framework for the course and then supplement with specialty vocabulary suggested by the students as the course is in progress. Potential areas for study through on-site customization include Spanish for Healthcare (doctors, nurses, healthcare workers) and Spanish for Business. This way, the course content is directly situated within the immediate communicative needs of the learners.
