In order to speak Spanish correctly, it all starts with basic pronunciation. The advantage with Spanish is that it is a very logical language and the rules of pronunciation are consistent. This is very unlike English, where two words with a similar spelling can have very different pronunciations: e.g. beard and heard.

The Spanish lessons were created by the author of Functional Police Spanish, Paul Kurtzweil. Paul is a retired law enforcement officer who has been teaching Spanish for over 15 years.
During his law enforcement career, Paul conducted over 3000 work-related translations; did interviews on Spanish language television; conducted undercover operations entirely in Spanish; spoke as a guest at events hosted by the Mexican Consulate; and translated legal documents for use in the Spanish-speaking communities within his jurisdiction.
Nowadays, Paul lives in the Riviera Maya and helps his fellow expats learn the basics of the language.
