How Do You Say It In Spanish?
Can you communicate effectively with your Spanish-speaking workers? Whether in the Home or out in the field, at the construction site, do you know how to give directions so that your workers will not mistake your meaning? Or…do you do a lot of weird hand gesturing and speak a type of pigeon-“Spanglish” and hope they get your meaning? There is a website which will help you learn Spanish and be able to communicate clearly and effectively with your Spanish-speaking workers and staff.
On this website, one learns Spanish via 3 different modalities: Visual through live-action Videos, Auditory through Audio lesson files, and Reading through PDF formatted files of each lesson. The lessons are self-paced.
The English-speaker learns thoroughly because each mode of instruction builds on the other mode so there is no gap. If you miss some piece of the Video, the Audio lesson will point it out. If you miss something in the Audio lesson, then the PDF of the lesson has it printed so you can read what you missed.
The live-action Videos show Spanish-speaking actors performing the dialogs. The videos can be played over and over so there is the opportunity to “see” what the dialog is all about. Just in case the actors seem to be speaking too rapidly, there is an Audio file of the lesson – you hear an English-speaking commentator interact a Spanish-speaking coach as they highlight different aspects of the Lesson. The learning process allows you download a PDF of the Lesson; you see and read what you are hearing through the Audio file which can also be downloaded.
Nothing is left to chance. Through-out the Audio lesson, there is plenty of time to repeat words and phrases – anywhere from 2 seconds for a word on up to 12 (or more) seconds for a sentence. Something which is rather interesting is the fact that some new words or phrases are repeated at least twice and sometimes four times. The idea is to see, hear, and say the words until it’s almost automatic – you actually start thinking in Spanish rather than English.
Many language programs incorporate two of the three methods mentioned above, but very few programs incorporate all three methods; therefore, the learning process is complete. One does not need to worry about getting it “right” the first time because the English-speaking customer is directing their own learning experience.
This is beauty of this website. The customer is treated intelligently, with respect because if the Learning process is artificially hurried, then there is no learning. The customer is in control!
The learning is Online – you learn at your own pace. The site provides not only the Lessons (which are delivered 2 per month), but it also provides free bonus material: once membership is established, you will have the confidence to say the following to your Spanish-speaking construction workers and staff and mean it – they won’t be guessing what you’re saying…
