Program Overview

Program Description:
The fundamental purpose of our Program is to provide non-Spanish speaking students a competent level of Spanish that allows them to satisfy, promptly and effectively, their communicational needs when speaking as well as when writing. We use a holistic approach, which means that we take care of every component of the learning process: not only we reinforce the four basic skills (speaking, listening, writing and reading) but we also encourage our students to learn about the culture, literature, and use of the language in a real context.
