Course Description

Spanish 200 Online focusses on reading, writing, and speaking beginning Spanish in the present tense.   This is an online class with no in-class sessions.  No prior knowledge of Spanish is needed but as the class is conducted entirely online, students must be motivated self-starters who can meet deadlines on their own.

  • There is no textbook to purchase for this course but there is a fee to access course material in addition to the course tuition.  As of 2013, this amount is $165.  You will pay this fee online when you get set up on the course host website.
