Additional Information:

During a seven week program full of interactive online meetings, exercises, and projects, students will be introduced to basic conversational Spanish and a technical vocabulary designed specifically for those who supervise or work closely with an agricultural/horticultural workforce. In addition, presentations and materials will include information on the importance of cultural conventions of the Spanish-speaking world that, if not understood, may negatively impact workplace dynamics.

Recorded instructor lectures, coupled with websites presenting the fundamentals of Spanish grammar, will provide instruction. The instructor will be available to support participant learning throughout the course with office hours and scheduled communications via phone or video chat. Learning a language is an active process and participants are strongly encouraged to engage with the material through the multiple assignments presented during the course and to practice vocabulary terms, etc.

Target Audience: Alumni,  General Public
