Spanish For Heritage Speakers

¡HEY TÚ! 

¿Hablas español hasta que te toca decir una palabra that you don’t know how to say in Spanish? Do you wonder why some words in Spanish have accents and some don’t? These are the classes for you!  

Enrich your language skills with an instructor who targets key areas of development specifically for heritage speakers of Spanish. Study among others developing their voice on the same borderlands between English and Spanish…

Heritage Spanish  courses are designed for students who grew up in an environment where the language was spoken frequently (who have had contact with it at home), and who want to improve their reading, writing, and conversation skills.
