Voght, Geoffrey M., Ed.
A collection of 25 essays dealing with Spanish for bilingual careers in business are included in this volume. The authors, including college faculty from 35 states, students, administrators, authors, and publishers, participated in a conference to exchange ideas on the development and implementation of university level business Spanish programs. Among the topics discussed are rationales for implementing business Spanish programs, domestic and international employment prospects for business Spanish graduates, potential funding sources for program development, existing business Spanish programs at U.S. universities, curriculum models, teaching methods for commercial Spanish classes, instructional materials and resources, proficiency testing, basic commercial Spanish vocabulary, the place of business Spanish in the liberal arts curriculum, and programs for cooperative education.
