Students will communicate professionally in Spanish orally and in writing, read and understand Spanish business terminology, identify common themes, and distinguish similarities and differences between the countries and cultures that comprise the Spanish-speaking Americas, and comprehend the historical, political, and social contexts of the past and present Latino populations in the United States and in Latin America.
