San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) November 29, 2013
Educational publisher Audio-Forum® is pleased to announce the release of Spanish for Health Professionals and Spanish for Police and Firefighters, a set of book and audio courses covering practical Spanish for emergency responders. Designed for medical, emergency and law enforcement personnel, these courses teach both basic phrases and specialized terminology for use in assisting Spanish-speaking individuals in a variety of emergency and human-services situations.
Spanish for Health Professionals and Spanish for Police and Firefighters provide an extensive selection of practical questions and expressions specifically geared towards emergency, medical and public safety situations. Emergency service personnel, hospital personnel, medical technicians, physicians, nurses, police officers and firefighters who need to communicate with Spanish-speaking people will find these titles ideal for dealing with the complicated and nuanced terminology of their respective professions. In contrast, a general Spanish language course may only provide conversational support for travel, business or social situations. It often cannot provide first responders with the targeted Spanish-language skills they need in their unique jobs, where using the wrong word or phrase could create confusion and possibly lead to dangerous mistakes.
In addition to several hours of audio, each course offers a quick-reference book with a glossary that covers common terms, plus an introduction to basic Spanish pronunciation and grammar. Spanish for Health Professionals features vocabulary dealing with heart attacks, pregnancy, poisons, burns, wounds, fractures, parts of the body, patient information, medical history and more. Spanish for Police and Firefighters focuses on asking questions, conducting interviews, time and measurement, descriptions, first aid, weapons and tools, fires and fire prevention, automobiles and drunk driving, narcotics and drug slang, arrests and the Miranda law, police reports, auto theft, assault, burglary and missing persons reports. Each title provides essential Spanish words and phrases in a fast, focused format that makes it easy to confidently pick up critical foreign language skills.
