    Does anyone know where in the New York City area (including close-in New Jersey) I could find a course in Spanish for Foodservice Supervisors ? Most of the courses I've looked at are either for a different industry, or just general instruction. Gracias por su ayuda. :look:

    When I opened that Marriott in Times Square, they used to send us someplace for just that type of learning. Call the F.S. Dept or Human Res. and ask. I believe there was other people there. They might still do this.

    How about English for Spanish speaking foodservice personnel? Perhaps that might be easier. As a matter of fact, why not English for all non-native English speakers? I once worked in a kitchen where all the chefs spoke French, the DMO's spoke only Spanish, the waitstaff were a hodgepodge of cultures from all around the world and the two bussers were Laotian. What a nightmare! Good thing the Laotians spoke a smattering of Cantonese and were well versed in French. This way I could communicate with the chefs.

    Dear Kuan -- the training is for ME. I need to learn more Spanish.

    You raised a good point, though. Right now there's a thread on ON THE RAIL about the multitude of languages in kitchens and FOH.
