Registration Opens for Spring Pastoral Spanish Classes at Notre Dame of Maryland University

December 8, 2011

NOTE: Pastoral Spanish has been renamed Spanish Language and Culture.

Notre Dame of Maryland University has begun registration for two Pastoral Spanish classes that will run during the spring semester. 

Two sessions of Spanish Language and Culture for Pastoral Settings (Part 1) will be offered on Tuesdays starting on February 21 and running through May 1 (excluding April 10). Afternoon sessions will be offered from 3 to 5 p.m. and evening sessions will be offered from 6 to 8 p.m.

Spanish Language and Culture for Pastoral Settings (Part 2) will be offered Monday afternoons from 3 to 5 p.m. starting February 20 and concluding April 30 (excluding April 9).

Spanish Language and Culture for Pastoral Settings (Part 1) is geared toward professionals or volunteers who work with the Hispanic community in parishes, schools, hospitals or other pastoral settings. The language component of the class enables students to learn basic conversational Spanish and elemental phrases. Pronunciation, listening and speaking skills are emphasized. The cultural component of the class focuses on the spirituality and faith expressions of the Hispanic community.

Spanish Language and Culture for Pastoral Settings (Part 2) emphasizes good pronunciation and speaking skills and provides greater focus on grammar, particularly the past tense, in order to increase conversational skills. Further study of cultural expressions to aid in ministry to and deepen understanding of the Hispanic community will be explored.

Enrollment is limited, and early registration is recommended. The fee for each course is $400 per person or $1,050 for three participants if registered by February 6. After that date the fee is $425 per person or $1,125 for three participants.
