|KAMMS World Wide has spent the last ten years creating and offering three series of language learning products and services for our clients: Spanish on the Job, English on the Job, and English for Life. KAMMS’ vision is to create the most convenient, effective and affordable language programs while having the greatest positive impact on people's lives, human relations and the advancement of societies.
The Language Barrier
Hispanics are the largest minority group in the US. There are currently 50 million documented Hispanics living in America and research tells us that half of Hispanics (or about 25 million) do not speak English well.
Additionally, “Over 400,000 documented Latino immigrants enter the US every year. This is the highest flow of Spanish-speaking immigrants in the history of the U.S. Most of these immigrants are filling low-skilled, blue-collared jobs.” Pew Hispanic Center
This large and growing number of Hispanics, who do not speak English well, is causing problems in the workplace, in our schools and neighborhoods: accidents, poor customer service, low productivity, poor use of company resources (employees who can’t communicate well), low student test scores, miscommunications in the community, etc.
The Language Solution
The nation needs an immediate, effective and affordable solution to alleviate these language barriers. Many language learning options currently available are costly and time consuming and learners may never learn the vocabulary needed for their particular industry or life situation. KAMMS’ programs allow learners to immediately improve communication by providing the most commonly encountered short and simple phrases in easy to learn formats, specifically designed for their job or life circumstances.
Learners can listen to an audio program on a CD or a preloaded MP3 player, watch a video, take an e-learning course, a skills training course and take advantage of our tutoring study sessions. Programs are designed to be used for self-paced learning or as the basis of instructor-led learning.
Comprehensive Language Training Program
We offer a Complete Workplace Language Training Program with proven results, designed for specific industries. The program includes a portable audio/visual learning system, corresponding workbooks, pocket guides, pre and post assessments and weekly tutoring done conveniently by telephone.
