Spanish for the Professions
Each chapter is organized into areas that introduce key infrastructural and cultural readings that encompass a different Latin American country. The student centered approach includes in-class presentations, dialogues, case studies, grammar, and vocabulary for professionals in the legal, public health, information technology, real estate, human resources, and banking and finance fields. The material is rooted in sound research and concrete practices that meet learning objectives in the classroom and the real world. In addition to mastering a new language, students learn cultural appropriateness and how to navigate specific aspects of their professions of choice in other countries. The final chapter, Los recursos humanos focuses on understanding and preparing the student for a job interview as a Spanish speaking professional.
The skills presented in Spanish for the Professions prime learners to successfully compete on a global scale as Spanish-speaking professionals. The book is appropriate for immersion courses at the intermediate and advanced levels.
