"I am a high school student taking concurrent enrollment classes at CCA. Having taken a few high school Spanish classes in the past, I wanted to expand my knowledge of the language and culture and be able to speak it fluently. I enjoy learning other languages, and also fluently speak Russian. In addition, I decided to take the Spanish courses at CCA and complete the Spanish program to help advance me in the career field in the future.
What I liked most about the classes was the interactivity. We engaged in much dialogue and discussion, which not only improved with oral communication skills, but also increased our knowledge of Latin-American culture. Also, the workload was manageable and every assignment was significant and beneficial. Another thing I liked about the Spanish program was the ability to take both SPA2011 and SPA2012 in the same semester and finish the program faster. Finally, the language department was tremendously helpful in advising me in what career opportunities are possible and what degrees would best suit my desired career field.
These classes will definitely benefit me not only in my future career, but also in my daily life to be able to communicate and connect with many more people around the world! I am greatly thankful for this program and the wonderful staff that helped me get where I am today!" -J.C.
