One Model for the Commercial-Spanish Curriculum.
Voght, Geoffrey M.
The degree requirements and course components for business Spanish at Eastern Michigan University's Language and International Trade program are described. The bachelors and masters programs in language and international trade have three components in each of three languages: business, language, and cooperative education work experience. In addition, a separate undergraduate major and minor in business Spanish is offered. A sequence of six business Spanish courses offers two courses each at the junior, senior, and graduate levels. Prerequisites are met during the first 2 years in regular Spanish courses. The business Spanish courses cover commercial correspondence and documents, Spanish articles on business related topics, and vocabulary related to operational areas of business administration. The instructional materials and their sources are described. The materials include textbooks on Spanish correspondence, a Spanish adaptation of a business text, one of the few available commercial Spanish texts, articles from foreign periodicals, and Spanish-to-Spanish dictionaries.
