Spanish for Latinos Track (Heritage Learners)
Do you speak Spanish or understand spoken Spanish but have a difficulty with writing and spelling?
This language track targets students that have an understanding of the language, but may have had little or no formal instruction. The typical student would have been born in the United States (or moved to the U.S. at a very early age) and most likely does not consider himself/herself a ‘native speaker’ of Spanish. This track builds on skills such as practice with family, at the workplace, or in new social settings. The aim is to improve formal speaking, reading, and writing for professional contexts and beyond.
