Spanish Next Step for Construction

Spanish next step for construction supervisors is probably most helpful in the form of an audio CD, because the need is for speaking and listening to employees, rather than reading Spanish words for construction in a book or on a Kindle.

On the bright side, having a genuine need for a foreign language and being forced to communicate with it daily may be the fastest ways to learn some of a foreign language.

LEARNING CONSTRUCTION SPANGLISH: A Beginner's Guide To Spanish On-The-Job [Paperback]

Terry Eddy (Author), Alberto Herrera (Author)

When construction managers need to talk about the specifics of a construction job – where the electrical outlets need to go, when the framing will be completed, how a plumbing problem will be solved – they need to be able to communicate clearly and effectively with workers. That task gets considerably more difficult when managers and workers are speaking in different languages. More than simple dictionary terms or phrases, managers need a tool for understanding the basics of the language their workers use – a resource that lets them communicate the myriad of questions, issues, schedules, and tasks that come up on a construction job. Learning Construction Spanglish is exactly the tool they need. This book offers up: • Communication tools – a method for understanding the basics of Spanglish – not just dictionary terms. • Practical, useful on-the-job terms and phrases. • Logical organization that makes info fast and easy to find. • Both English/Spanish and Spanish/English glossaries.

Each translation has been confirmed by teams of reviewers in the United States and Latin America to ensure accuracy and reflect a wide range of Spanish dialects. Since there is considerable overlap among engineering disciplines, many of the terms in this book are also applicable to electrical, mechanical, and structural engineering.
