About Common Ground International
Founders & Owners
Rory and Leslie Foster founded Common Ground International in the fall of 2001 while they were teaching Spanish at Alexander Dawson in Lafayette, Colorado. Leslie was teaching middle school Spanish, and Rory was teaching Kindergarten – 6th Grade Spanish.
Some friends, who were about to start clinical rotations in their Doctorate of Nursing program, requested specialized Spanish classes to help them be more successful in their rotations. The medical Spanish classes were a raving success, and the idea was born to form a company dedicated to helping students and professionals use Spanish in practical settings.
Over the years the idea has expanded to include other professional industries apart from medicine, helping high school Spanish students graduate with real Spanish conversational skills, American English training for professionals around the world, document translation, and Spanish – English interpreting services.
Rory and Leslie now have a bilingual family, and a wonderful team of language professionals here in Colorado and throughout Central America that they enjoy working with as they carry out Common Ground’s mission.
