Two Innovative Choices for Teaching Cops Or
Firefighters & Paramedics -- Only Available With Us!


Fun Lessons for Law Enforcement or Fun Lessons for Emergency Responders! Don't reinvent the wheel! Develop and teach professional classes at police/sheriff/fire departments, colleges or academies using our police or fire/paramedic instructor manuals.

Even if you lack classroom techniques and language teaching experience, you can be successful using our classroom methods and experience, basing your course on our hands-on presentation of a 36-hour beginning Spanish classes for Law Enforcement for police officers/deputies or Spanish for Emergency Responders for firefighters and paramedics.

In the case you have limited classroom hours, consider an alternative approach for classes under 24 hours. Follow our instructor manual's steps having your students using only our student booklets as their primary text since you will not have enough classroom time to teach structure and basic vocabulary in our student textbook, Breezing Through Emergency Spanish.

We have taken lots of shortcuts to eliminate unnecessary content and to present a minimum of structure, getting students off to the best possible start for speaking and understanding. Your students will get personal information, act out scenarios, give commands, as well as learn basic vocabulary and apply structural concepts. This is an alternative to traditional textbooks—and a lot more fun to teach! For extra practice, a floppy disk with quizzes in PowerPoint is included with the manuals.

Both our police and fire/paramedic manuals are based on Book 1 of our student textbook edition, Breezing Through Emergency Spanish. The law enforcement student booklet is Spanish for Emergency Personnel and the emergency responder student booklet is Spanish for Firefighters, Paramedics and Police Officers.

LE edition: Fifty-eight pages, 1st ed., 2002; Plastic binding. ER edition: Fifty-eight pages, 1st ed., 2003; Plastic binding.

Note: to simplify your presentation, student texts are not included within the instructor manuals and they should be purchased separately.
