"Spanish for Construction" is a self-paced, online Spanish course designed for construction workers, contractors, foremen, and anybody who works with Spanish-speaking employees and co-workers in the construction industry. In addition to basic greetings and general Spanish vocabulary, the course also covers building areas, hand tools, power tools, construction equipment, building supplies, hardware, landscaping, painting, and electrical terms, safety equipment, and supervisory expressions. The course is designed for approximately 16 hours of instruction, is available for 6 months, and includes a certificate of completion when finished.

The course incorporates visual imagery (photos associated with words and phrases for better retention), native speakers to hear proper pronunciation, language tips, intuitive reading exercises, interactive assessments to measure your progress and comprehension, and cultural lessons. And remember--this course is self-paced (with an instructor available to answer questions)! Go through the course as slowly or quickly as you would like.
