About the program:
Spanish Language and Culture (Part 1) is geared toward professionals or volunteers who work with the Hispanic community in schools, hospitals, parishes, community-based organizations or other professional setting. The language component enables one to learn basic conversational skills and elemental phrases to better communicate with Spanish-speaking persons. Good pronunciation, listening and speaking skills are emphasized. The cultural component emphasizes the spirituality, customs and traditions of Hispanics. (No prior experience in Spanish is necessary).
Spanish Language and Culture (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 deepen understanding of the Hispanic community will be explored. (Prerequisite: Part 1 or equivalent).
Spanish Language and Culture (Part 3) further strengthens listening and speaking skills. Attention is focused on using the language in practical, conversational ways, drawing on the needs and experiences of the participants. There is also a continued grammar and cultural component. (Prerequisite: Part 2 or equivalent).
