Current Students and Alumni
"I studied Spanish for two years in high school and really enjoyed it but I did not think that I would study it any further once I completed those two years. The year after I stopped studying Spanish in highs school I got a job at a fast food restaurant and found myself speaking Spanish to customers on a regular basis and found it to be useful in the rest of my life as well so when I go to Lyon it was an easy decision to continue to study Spanish so that I can get better at it.
The Spanish program here at Lyon may be smaller than Spanish programs at other schools but this is a good program in that it incorporates travel to Spanish speaking countries, through Nichols trips, and the professors are able to give more one on one attention to students which larger programs are not able to offer."
