As the world becomes increasingly smaller, knowledge of foreign languages expands
in importance. Spanish is a very useful language in education, health, social services,
business, and other fields where contact with the public takes place. The focus of
the program is on language; however, students also gain historical, economic, and
cultural insights into the Hispanic world.
The graduate of the AA program in Spanish will:
- Be independent language learners and have core competencies in grammar and vocabulary,
reading, writing, oral and listening skills, and develop a cultural awareness, to
achieve their personal, vocational, and academic goals.

"I came from Mexico at age17, which meant I not only had to learn English at a High School level, but had to prepare for college-level courses. During my first semesters at AHC I enrolled in ESL, and made extensive use of their writing lab, which I believe was critical in my transition to transfer level classes. Engineering is a difficult major on its own, but learning all those concepts and terminology while just getting out of ESL classes was a challenge. AHC professors, counselors and programs were key to my success."
