What is the Spanish program?

This program teaches you Spanish language skills with an emphasis on four skills: speaking, reading, writing and listening.

What will I learn?

This program provides a college-level approach to language acquisition. You'll develop Spanish language skills associated with everyday tasks and settings, including work, home, school, healthcare, tourism and more. You'll learn vocabulary and level-appropriate grammatical structures in courses including Beginning Conversational Spanish, Elementary Spanish I and II, Intermediate Spanish I and II, and Elementary and Intermediate Medical Spanish. You'll also study the diverse cultures of the Spanish-speaking world as you improve your problem-solving, multi-tasking, and decision-making skills.

What can I do with this course of study?

In addition to preparing you to communicate in Spanish in a variety of settings, this program will prepare you to transfer to a four-year university to pursue a bachelor's degree. Bilingualism can improve your competitiveness in the job market and create new career opportunities in fields including business, healthcare, public relations, sales, social services and more.

What's special about this program?

We offer a free written exam for possible placement into higher levels of Spanish. You won’t receive a credit or letter grade, but we use the score to make decisions about what class you should take. Our courses help students become diversity-sensitive individuals ready to face a new era in today's increasingly interdependent world community. Advanced language learning brings new cultural insights, increases global understanding, and reveals the limitations of any monolingual view of the world. Individuals who speak a second language typically earn at least 3 percent more in their salary. Being bilingual enhances an individual's mental skills at every level and can delay the signs of Alzheimer's. SAC Spanish courses are ideal for both pre-majors and for those who either wish to develop their Spanish language skills for professional or personal goals.
