This is our catalog of courses. We will occasionally adjust the course listing to reflect the addition of new courses and the retirement of others.
This course will give students the opportunity to practice their speaking and listening skills in Spanish through the discussion of articles and topics dealing with the world today.
In this course, students will review previously learned grammar and vocabulary and deepen and polish their conversational skills through group discussion of articles in class.
