Being able to communicate in Spanish may be more than just convenient. Sometimes, it could save lives.
Spanish in the workplace classes are being offered on Brevard Community College’s Cocoa and Titusville campuses through the Institute for Business and Community Education, and on site at interested businesses in the area.
“With the large and growing Spanish-speaking population in this area and the growing number of Spanish-speaking travelers to our area, both for business and pleasure, there are many good reasons for learning to communicate on a basic level in Spanish,” said instructor Adrienne Snair-Trothier.
Those in service industries and law enforcement, as well as emergency responders, would do well to learn basic phrases in Spanish, Snair-Trothier said.
“For those who work in public safety, knowing some Spanish may improve a dangerous situation and may even impact a matter of life and death,” she said.
