Any suggestions in regards to courses in Spanish for law enforcement? Preferably in New Jersey.

You can get the app Memrise if you have an iPhone or iPad. It’s good for learning many well known foreign languages. It shows two dialects of Spanish: one for Spain and one for Mexico. I speak Spanish but in a more Puerto Rican dialect/accent and I tested the Spanish lessons for Mexico... better than Duolingo.

The best way to learn is with a mixture of free apps/websites like Duolingo, but the most important thing is to actively communicate and immerse yourself in the target languages. Otherwise, you might know quite a bit, but you will never be fluent.

Very great point! I work with some Spanish speakers and do mobile forensics so run across a lot of phones belonging to Spanish speakers. Figure if I learn should be able to use it on a daily basis. Thanks again all!
