With more and more Spanish-speaking people living in the United States every year, learning the Spanish language is becoming ever more important—especially in the field of law enforcement, where clear and quick communication is crucial. Mastering basic Spanish will give you more power to handle situations involving Spanish-speaking victims, witnesses, or criminals. It's a smart career move as well, because adding Spanish skills to your résumé can open the door to new job opportunities.
Whether you're new to the Spanish language or just want a refresher, this course will teach you the basic Spanish phrases you need for everything from making casual conversation to handling life-or-death situations. You'll start with simple vocabulary for everyday topics including colors, numbers, conversational phrases, family names, and words for asking questions. Next, you'll learn Spanish terminology you can use during arrests, traffic stops, medical emergencies, and many other common law enforcement situations.
In this course, you'll focus specifically on Spanish for law enforcement personnel, skipping the "touristy" phrases you don't need to know. And to make your learning easy and painless, the course is sprinkled with fun games and stories. So if you're having flashbacks to your boring high school Spanish class, don't worry—you can learn Spanish and have fun at the same time. By the end of this course, you'll be well on your way to being a Spanish speaker and communicating more effectively with the Spanish speakers all around you.
A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.

I was surprised how helpful this course was! I truly learned far more than I expected to. I feel this course will be very helpful to me working in the field and I also look forward to continuing my studies of Spanish.
I really enjoyed taking this course. The material was very helpful and easy to follow. I would recommend this course to others who are interested in learing the Spanish language.
Thank you for a very interesting learning experience. The course was great!
Thank you! The course was very well done and I enjoyed taking it.
It was fun to follow the characters through the course! It gave the material some flavor, rather than just having dry material.
This course allowed me to have confidence in the training I have already received and will assist me in my future goals. Thank you for making this course available and very informative. I really enjoyed this course. Thank you, Tara!
This was the first online course I have taken. I look forward to taking more. The instructor was outstanding, she responded to questions and comments in a timely manner and made discussions pleasant and a pleasure to learn from.
Being of Spanish descent, the lessons helped me to learn the very basics (alphabet, numbers, letters, verbs) which I had not known before. The lessons covered everything I needed to know to speak properly when I used my Spanish language with others.
This course was the most organized and best presented course I have taken for studying Spanish. As a Law Enforcement Agent, this course was structured around the daily conversation of communication. Very happy with this course.
Awesome course and useful not only for law enforcement but for anyone wanting to learn Spanish. Thanks again, Tara!
