You can study Spanish online at Sterling Academy. Most colleges require a student to have had 2 years of a foreign language in high school before being admitted into college, and Spanish is the most popular world language that high school students choose. Our Spanish courses are available to not only full-time Sterling Academy students, but also part-time students who just want to take a Spanish course online.
Why study Spanish?
Spanish is spoken by 426 million people around the world. Speaking Spanish opens the doors of communication with Spain, South America, Central America and the Caribbean. There is also a very large population of Spanish-speaking people in the United States. Business partnerships are growing between the two cultures. If our students prepare themselves by becoming bilingual, they will have a great advantage in the workforce in the future.
At Sterling Academy we give students the opportunity to learn the language and be able to use it in real life situations.
How Sterling Academy’s language learning approach sets us apart
Our program was developed by the well known Middlebury College Language School. They have developed a program that uses language immersion while the courses are aligned with the national standards set by The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).
Our Spanish courses focus on the most important areas of world language study: listening, speaking, reading and writing. We use authentic video, audio, images and texts which allow full participation and practice in the four key areas of study. Our curriculum is also centered on the cultural aspects of the Spanish World. There are many cultural assignments that make the student aware of the differences and similarities between the cultures.
