Tactical Spanish for Law Enforcement Officers is really an indispensable tool for the modern police officer. Those of us who work in multi-lingual, multi-cultural jurisdictions, recognize the importance of connecting to our community. Oftentimes, language is the barrier that keeps that from happening.

Your Spanish language Law Enforcement courses have always been a delightful learning experience for those of us lucky enough to have taken them in the classroom and you’ve really done an excellent job of replicating that experience with your new “learn at home” course. I was impressed enough that our department purchased the course for all interested officers. You’ve increased the positive connection between our department and our Spanish-speaking community members and I would heartily recommend Tactical Spanish for Law Enforcement Officers to police officers or police agencies wishing to do the same.

Police Officer Michael Brookman, Morgan Hill Police Department, Morgan Hill, CA

I started the Tactical Spanish for Law Enforcement Officers and I enjoyed it. The course contains much more than I’ve had to use so far. The vocabulary is simple enough to use on the street. It is closer to the vernacular than any other Spanish course I’ve seen. The Slang and Profanities section was very useful.

It made me more believable to those to whom I was speaking. It was much easier to establish a rapport. The course is easy and has a natural flow that helps learning.

I feel MUCH more confident with my Spanish. It helped give me the courage to do the total immersion in Zacatecas, Mexico!!

Officer Ruth Anne Jones, Pearl Harbor Police Department, Pearl Harbor, HI

Your course Tactical Spanish for Law Enforcement Officers helped me a lot in my job as a Federal Police Officer. It was very easy to use and I think my confidence has increased immensely in communicating with Spanish speaking individuals while at work.

Deputy Sheriff David Weidner, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, Redwood City, CA

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how great your course Tactical Spanish for Law Enforcement Officers as well as your classes.! Prior to taking your Spanish class and purchasing the self study course, I never spoke any Spanish.

When I was on patrol, I worked in a Hispanic community. It was important for me to try and learn Spanish so I could communicate with the citizen which I served. I thought this was going to be difficult since I never had any formal Spanish classes. All I did was listen to one CD a night and follow along in the work book. Within 2 weeks I was able to understand and speak more Spanish than I ever thought possible. This is by far the best Spanish teaching course I ever had. It is very easy to follow and the best part about the course is, it’s something you can do at your own pace. I would recommend this to any peace officer. Again, thank you.
