Our students acquire communication skills in Spanish. They develop understanding about the role of language and culture in communication. Their reflections on language use and language learning are applied in other learning contexts.


Learning languages broadens students’ horizons about the personal, social, cultural and employment opportunities that are available in an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world. The interdependence of countries and communities requires people to negotiate experiences and meanings across languages and cultures.
