Spanish Program

Spanish is the official language of over twenty countries in the world, and it is the second most-used language in the United States. In the Spanish department of Columbia Gorge Community College (CGCC), we provide classes that help students develop linguistic abilities in the language, with an emphasis on real-world proficiency, as well as introduce students to the major historical and cultural phenomena that characterize the Spanish-speaking world.
