What would my first year be like?

Depending upon the unit in which you are enrolled, you will have four or five hours of classes per week. You will be taught by native and non-native speakers, all of whom have extensive experience in a variety of Spanish-speaking countries. Spanish is the language of instruction for all language classes, as this allows you to have as much contact as possible with the language from the very beginning. Nevertheless, staff may at times switch into English to clarify a particular point.

The introduction to Spanish and Latin American societies and cultures in Spanish Introductory 1 & 2 is conducted in English. At intermediate and proficient level, all classes are taught in Spanish.
