Spanish for the Professions

The mission of this SIG is to provide a forum for the sharing of research and pedagogy related to the teaching of Spanish for special professional purposes. Goals:

  • To share ideas and approaches to the teaching of these specialized courses
  • To develop a better understanding of the needs of the Hispanic population in regards to professional services in their language
  • To explore linguistic and cultural considerations that need to be addressed in the teaching of these courses
  • To examine career tracks that may benefit from language courses for specific purposes

I am signing this form in support of forming an ACTFL Special Interest Group (SIG) on the topic of Spanish for the Professions.

What Our Members Are Saying

ACTFL offers its members a professional home where they can connect, share, network and energize. I belong to ACTFL because I am a language educator, and implicit in that is the idea of constantly developing professionally. I am always looking for ways to better the learning experience for my students. ACTFL continues to provide me with opportunities to do so.
