Spanish for Librarians

Survival Spanish for Library Staff – Survival Spanish for Library Staff was an all-day workshop Infopeople developed to provide library staff with basic skills for communicating with Spanish-speaking patrons. Now the essential words and phrases taught in the workshop have been integrated into easy to digest MP3 files that are structured so that you can practice at your own pace, whenever you want, for as long as you want! These tracks are designed for individual use, but are suitable for group practice, too!
