Foreign Language

Welcome to the NWOSU Foreign Language Program. Bienvenidos al Lenguas Extranjeras de la Universidad Estatal del Noroeste de Oklahoma.
 
Our full-time Spanish professor, Dr. Frank Martinez, is always willing to help any student in need of academic assistance. He helps students experience culture through authentic materials and interaction with native speakers. Dr. Martinez also has lived abroad, which enriches his instruction. Spanish classes emphasize communicative skills.
 
Dr. Martinez also is active in the university's Spanish club, which is involved in both university activities and civic projects, and Sigma Delta Pi, the international Spanish honor society.
