SPA 235 – Spanish for Law Enforcement Course to be offered for Fall 2019

The Department of Modern Languages is offering a new course for the Fall of 2019. SPA-235 will be all about “Spanish for Law Enforcement.” This course will help students learn how to use a flexible, concise introduction to Spanish grammar and communication to better address and serve those in the law enforcement professions who seek basic conversational skills in Spanish.

Topics include practical vocabulary, everyday on-the-job situations, and culture notes (notas culturales) written from a cross-cultural perspective. It provides students with opportunities to apply, in a wide variety of practical contexts, the grammatical structures presented in the corresponding lessons of the VISTAS textbook.

For anyone interested in taking this course, it will be offered Tuesday and Thursday from 4 – 5:15 p.m. The class has as a prerequisite, SPA 132, and it will be offered on St. Thomas and St. Croix campuses using video teleconference.
