The course, Conversational Spanish, meets many learning styles by using activities and conversation that introduces and presents the Spanish language at a basic level.  This interactive approach to speaking Spanish can be applied in the classroom, the workplace, or the community as you participate in community involvement, and during interactions with native Spanish speakers. Students can expect to improve their spoken Spanish skills and augment vocabulary to enhance listening and comprehension skills in an interactive learning environment.
