Our native-speaking qualified Spanish teachers can guide you and your group at your work or at home, at a time convenient to you. Classes can take place on any day of the week - even weekends - morning, afternoon or evening. If needs be, if meeting at your office or home is not suitable, you can take your lessons at the trainer's office. Study materials are supplied for you.
Spanish lessons of this type are broader and are aimed towards students with a variety of requirements. While all beginner level students will cover survival Spanish - needed for short visits to countries where English isn't widely spoken, or if you wish to 'go local'; those studying Spanish usually go in different directions at this point, depending on what they need. Those who have benefitted from these Spanish classes have been those investing in or buying property overseas, those married to overseas nationals, people setting off on a round-the-world trip, enthusiasts in Spanish culture, and those enthusiastic to pass a specific exam in Spanish.
Those who would benefit the most from these Spanish tutorials are those who feel they need to learn Spanish to help them out in their business lives. For starters, learning salutations and business etiquette is integral; once these have been practiced then reading and writing lessons can start. Typical studiers have been those involved in international import/export, negotiations and acquisitions, those in multinational companies requiring another language, and those working in any way with international governments and relevant administration. Just our simplest lesson for beginners will have students finishing the lessons with basic telephone and e-mail Spanish, as well as survival Spanish should a visit to the country be necessary.
Lessons in Spanish are also accessible for 2 or more studying in tandem (Two-to-One Spanish Lesson or Small Group In-Company Spanish Lesson). All those involved must have around the same experience of the language, similar needs of areas of proficiency, and must be able to work at the same time and place. Bookings must be made for all students at the same time. Listen & Learn do not advise classes of more than 6-8 people, although In-Company Taster Spanish sessions can be run with as many as 12 people.
Grammar in Spanish generally follows the same rule as English - Subject, Verb, Object - and adjectives usually follow the nouns they go with
Spanish is phonetic: if you can read it, you can speak it
Italian and Spanish are generally mutually intelligible: native speakers of each language have little difficulty in understanding one another

Kansas CityThe third largest city in the state of Kansas, the population of KCK currently stands around 150,000 people. Kansas City is one of America's more historic cities, reflected in the amount of interesting architecture and momentous landscapes - including a replica of Paris' Arc de Triomphe, the Rosedale Arch. The city also has a rich legacy of filmmaking, often being used as a location for Hollywood productions. This often attracts immigrants to the city, and Kansas City has something of an ethnically diverse population. A great place to learn Spanish with the recent influx of Hispanic and Latino cultures, many other languages are also spoken within city limits.
