Electronic Mail in a Spanish Language Business Course.
A course in Commercial Spanish at West Chester University in Pennsylvania is described that incorporates computer networking and a writing emphasis. Students use word processing and electronic mail to facilitate writing assignments, with the E-Mail function managed through the university's computing center. The 20 students in the class included native speakers, graduating Spanish majors, and students with only three or four previous semesters of Spanish. E-Mail was useful for actual assignments, class information, news items, and several exemplary biweekly student comments which were presented as examples. Expository and persuasive writing were featured in the form of business letters. Students were also involved in group class work. The course provided students with many invaluable skills, including those related to business courses, computer use, and technical concepts. (LB)
