"I was nervous about taking an online Spanish class, but it has been great!" — Student, Fall 2015

Online Spanish Curriculum

Lower Columbia College's online Spanish curriculum uses Vistas (first-year sequence) and Enfoques (second-year sequence) through Vista Higher Learning.

Vistas may be taken for college credit (5 credits each level), as Spanish for the Workplace (3 credits each level), or as an audited course for learning everyday Spanish.

By the end of the first five credits, most beginners understand enough Spanish to participate in a conversation!
