Many people find it necessary to communicate with Hispanic employees, customers and citizens, but don’t have the time to fully learn Spanish. Colorado Mountain College now offers them a solution with workplace Spanish classes.These classes focus on effective communication, not academic proficiency, said Heidi Bimmerle, workforce training coordinator at Colorado Mountain College. “Workplace Spanish uses bite-size workplace terms and expressions in a simple, easy-to-understand format. No grammar, conjugation or prior experience is necessary,” she said. “Emphasis is placed on learning key Spanish terms and phrases that are important to your job or business.”Workplace Spanish courses are designed to help businesses communicate simply but effectively, with Spanish-speakers in work situations. They will help make companies more productive and efficient when working with Hispanic employees, customers and citizens. The programs are used in many industries, occupations and trades to improve communications, teamwork and efficiency. Courses for business and industry include banking and credit unions, builders and contractors, commercial construction, customer service, health care, human resources, manufacturing, pharmacists and restaurants.Government courses include city and county government, building and fire inspectors, police officers, firefighters and EMS personnel, and teachers and school administrators.Classes can be scheduled to meet client needs in terms of location, time and course length.
