Learn the essential Spanish for teachers so you can bridge the communication gap with your Spanish-speaking students and parents!

In addition to basic greetings and general Spanish vocabulary, you'll master words and phrases that directly relate to the classroom, such as classroom objects, front-office receptions, action verbs and commands, study skills, registration, course names, school rules and discipline, and parent-teacher conference vocabulary. By the end of this course, you'll be well on your way to being a Spanish speaker and communicating effectively with the Spanish-speakers all around you. ¡Vamos! (Let's go!)
