Are you a "Spanish Heritage Speaker"?  A "Spanish Heritage Speaker" is someone who learned the Spanish language because it was spoken in the family, community or country of origin.  However, many students benefit from additional instruction (mainly in writing and reading) to become a more fluent speaker and to appropriately use Spanish in the workplace.  Information about the cultures of many Spanish speaking countries is also included. For more information and to determine if you are a "Spanish Heritage Speaker", click here.  


2.  A Certificate of Accomplishment.  See the catalog for details: Spanish Program
