Offers Internet Spanish Language Class
Merced College begins
a new semester August 13 and it’s not too late to enroll. However,
many people can’t find the time to fit a traditional class into
their busy schedule, so Merced College is making it easier for students
to take classes from the comfort of their own home by offering several
classes on-line for the spring semester.
One such class is Intermediate Spanish Span-04, a 5 unit class, which
offers a thorough review of the fundamentals of reading, writing, speaking
and understanding Spanish. This class is also transferable to the CSU
and UC systems.
Merced College Internet-based classes give students an opportunity to
complete most of the course work outside the classroom at times they find
most convenient. Currently, most of the internet-based classes require
some time on campus in face-to-face contact with the instructor.
Students who take internet-based classes should have a strong sense of
self-motivation and dedication to school work, particularly as it relates
to meeting deadlines. Students should also realize that Internet-based
classes take as much time, if not more, as regular classes to complete.
Students must also have access to the Internet and a computer. Merced
College has an open computer lab where students can access the Internet
to take these classes, but it is not open around the clock, on holidays,
or Sundays, so access to a personal computer is strongly encouraged.
