Who Can Register? Anyone interested in taking Spanish as a world language OTHER THAN NATIVE SPEAKERS OF SPANISH can register for Spanish classes. (These classes are NOT meant for native speakers. The content of world language classes at MTHS are meant for non-native speakers - they are not designed to teach spelling, writing, nor grammar to the extent that a native Spanish speaker would desire.)

If you feel you have a good foundation from a prior language course at a lower level, you should obtain a teacher signature to start in Spanish 2.
