About the instructor: Deepa has been an Emergency Room Nurse in California since the early 1990’s, and has been translating Spanish for clients the entire time! She studied French in High School and at the University, and as she began her career in Nursing she realized that she could understand the Spanish people were using, but that her only available responses were in French. The clients were able to understand her French, and then they translated the words to Spanish for her. Over the decades of working in the ER, with multiple trips to Mexico, Costa Rica and South America, Deepa has gained quite a proficiency in Spanish; she has created this program to highlight tips that help others learn to communicate easily with their Spanish speaking clients. Her enjoyable teaching style relaxes the learner, takes away the stress and fear around learning a new language and makes it fun. We do not memorize lists or conjugations, we focus on how to simply communicate your needs and ask questions in such a way as to get simple, easy to understand answers. Using a mix of didactic, experience and play we will expand our communication tools and have an enjoyable time too.
