Teaching Professional Spanish: The Experience of a Small, Liberal Arts College.
Rosary College, a small liberal arts college, has been expanding its foreign language and business programs. Among its new offerings is a professional Spanish course that can be taken following the advanced intermediate courses in speaking and writing. Advertising for the course has been directed at undergraduate international business majors, employed adult students, and high school and college Spanish departments. The course covers correspondence, completion of forms, reports and dialogues, interpreting, and simultaneous translation. There are few adequate instructional materials available for business Spanish and extreme care must be exercised in selection. Suggestions are made regarding the role of a business language course in a small college, advertising course offerings, and maintaining student interest. (RW)
