Online Spanish classes are for business professionals, educators
Montana State University offers two online Spanish courses this summer: One designed specifically for business professionals, and the other designed for educators.
Spanish for Education Professionals runs June 11 to July 23.
Spanish for Business Professionals runs June 25 to Aug. 3.
Both courses are offered fully online. Enrollment in an MSU degree program is not required for either course, and off-campus professionals are encouraged to participate.
Both courses begin with basic Spanish-language concepts so new language students can succeed. However, as both courses also focus on Latino culture, vocabulary and conversation, advanced Spanish learners will benefit, as well.
Spanish for Education Professionals is taught by Sally Sanchez. Sanchez teaches at MSU, and has also taught in the public schools and in adult education programs. She previously worked in Los Angeles for the Spanish government at the Trade Commission of Spain and then later as the director of an agency established to promote trade and investment in the province of Valencia, Spain.
The instructor for Spanish for Business Professionals is Katharina Frank Bernstein, who has taught Spanish at MSU, at Park High in Livingston, LaMotte School near Bozeman, and for the Adult Education Center in Bozeman. She has lived in Panama, Mexico, Belize and Costa Rica.
Enrollment for both courses is limited, and students are encouraged to register as soon as possible. For more information about the courses, including fees, visit
