Frequently asked questions
Who is your ideal client?
An attorney who often encounters opportunities to consult with and/or represent Spanish speakers, but lacks the ability to do so. This training is ideal for the attorney that desires to connect with the Spanish-speaking population in a professional and direct way. No previous experience with the language is required.
What can one expect during a typical training session with you?
Attorneys can expect to gain more confidence in speaking Spanish.
Where does the Spanish language training take place?
Sessions take place online. A link to the virtual classroom is emailed shortly before the scheduled session begins. The virtual classroom works with Mac and Windows computers and requires you to have either Google Chrome (version 51.0 and later) or Mozilla Firefox (version 43 and later). The classroom is browser based, so no software downloads are required!
Is the Spanish language training available to traditional students who need help for Spanish class?
Yes! Oftentimes, Spanish is not spoken enough by students who are learning Spanish in a traditional high school/college setting, leaving such students with underdeveloped language skills. It is said, “If you don’t use it, you lose it.”
Are there any outside resources needed for use during the session?
Nope! As a client, you only need to bring a willingness to learn, the ability to exercise your vocal cords, and a positive attitude.
Learning a foreign language can be hard. How do you keep your clients motivated?
I like to encourage my clients to strive for success. One of my favorite quotes is, "If you believe, you can achieve!"
