The Spanish language program offers five levels of language learning for adults wishing to learn, improve, and practice their Spanish language skills. Four terms are offered per year (Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer Intensive). The courses are student-centered, interactive, and taught in an intimate, casual, and professional learning atmosphere with an average of 12 students per class.
