Professional Spanish for Native Speakers is designed specifically for native/heritage speakers of Spanish with considerable oral proficiency. The purpose of this course is to enable students whose heritage language is Spanish to develop, maintain and enhance Spanish-language proficiency in use in across a variety of business settings and industries. Students will have an opportunity to listen and speak about their specific industries with instructor-led discussion and feedback. Each session will include a grammar review on one area which the students appear to find particularly challenging.
