In the news: Outreach offerings in Spanish rate US News mention


Featured on the Education page of the U.S. News & World Report website is a story about studying a foreign language online. Mentioned is UW-Green Bay’s Spanish in the Professions certificate programs coordinated by Outreach and Adult Access. “A certificate from the school typically attracts learners who have already earned college degrees but want to enhance their resume, communicate with Spanish employees in the workplace or fulfill personal enrichment,” the story says. “Anneliese Waggoner, 73, of Green Bay, is a retired teacher who enrolled in the Green Bay program online. Interactive textbooks, exercises and video clips, among other features, made the class particularly interactive for her, and the Saturday morning face-to-face lessons were crucial to practicing communication, she says.” You can see the full story.
