Learn to communicate simply, but effectively, with Spanish-speaking citizens in emergency situations! Its easier than you think no grammar, no alphabet to memorize, no rules to study. Just learn key phrases and terms specifically for firefighters and paramedics. Workplace Spanish® for Firefighters and EMS Personnel has been created from actual training classes conducted for firefighters and EMS technicians. Firefighters & EMTs in Chandler & Gilbert, AZ; Alpharetta, GA; Gaffney, SC and other communities have used our manual and CD to build or improve their Spanish skills. Organized by topic, the quick-reference manual contains more than 450 key terms and phrases for emergency medical & fire-related situations. Youll master Spanish pronunciation and be able to engage in short conversations focusing on greeting and identifying people, pain & medical assessment, giving instructions, firefighter orders, rescue and safety terminology. The book also features a "Drills for Skills" quiz section, a 9-page alphabetical keyword list for fast lookup, and a series of practice conversations to simulate real-world emergencies. The one-hour audio CD contains all phrases covered in the book, plus pronunciation tips and suggestions on how to learn more quickly. The CD features both a native Spanish speaker and a non-fluent, yet accurate English speaker repeating the terms and phrases. Newcomers to Spanish find this to be a great advantage over traditional language tapes.
