The United States has the 2nd largest Spanish-speaking population in the world and 80% of the agricultural workforce in the U.S. speak Spanish!

Learning Spanish with Katie will help you: 

  • Build rapport, respect and positive relationships with others.
  • Enhance communication within teams and the dairy industry.
  • Have fun while building your language skills!
"This class has been a HUGE help for me. I went from playing charades to being able to say what I needed. I loved your energy and enthusiasm for Spanish and it makes me super excited and motivated to learn. Thank you for making Spanish fun for me again."
