Foreign language studies at Le Moyne aim to acquaint students with a language, culture and civilization different from their own. As part of their program of study, Spanish majors are required to spend a semester abroad, as well as take the Oral Proficiency Interview, a linguistic competence test developed by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, and reach the Advanced Low level. Students need to register for SPN 400 Oral Proficiency Preparation.
Le Moyne also offers a sequence leading to New York state teaching certification for those looking to teach Spanish to others. Students will not only learn the language, but explore all aspects of the Spanish culture.
