Students acquire a working knowledge of the language system as well as cultural conventions and norms of politeness. This enables them to perform communicative tasks in Spanish and to
successfully transmit and receive meaningful messages.
Students’ technical areas integrate into the Spanish curriculum through exploring pertinent issues from a Spanish perspective. These connections include work-place diversity, employ-ability skills, positive work behaviors, and underlying principles of technology. Links to academic areas are also developed through the use of hands-on projects, writing, reading, and public speaking.
The Spanish curriculum is aligned with the Massachusetts State Frameworks and students who complete the Spanish program meet the foreign language requirements necessary by most colleges.
