The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Outreach Program is offering a Spanish for Professionals course this fall that will meet the needs of professionals who are in contact with Spanish-speaking customers.

The program is designed for employees in all fields of work who want to gain more knowledge of the Spanish language in order to meet the needs of their customers.

Students will have the opportunity to expand their Spanish language skills through face-to-face interaction, class work and an online supplementation.

One class will be held in Wood Hall, rooms 213 and 214, on the UW-Green Bay Campus, 2420 Nicolet Drive. The other will be held in the executive boardroom at the Stone Harbor Resort, 107 N.
