CMC finds niche with Spanish classesGLENWOOD SPRINGS School finds niche with Spanish classes for employersColorado Mountain College may have found a niche by offering language classes to employers.Last fall, the city of Glenwood Springs paid for customized Spanish classes for its employees. Target recently provided English classes for employees and Spanish classes to supervisors. Other employers including some hotels in Aspen also have paid for the classes.Classes go for eight weeks, with one two-hour class per week. The cost varies depending on the class size. CMC also provides free English classes on campus through grant money. (Glenwood Springs Post Independent)
