Query:   Dear linguists,

I am currently researching courses designed to teach Spanish to
native speakers of Spanish in the US. At the moment I am compiling a
list of names of colleges and universities in the US that have such
courses as part of their curriculum. If your college/university
offers such a course or if you know of one which does please send me a
message at the address below. In addition, any other information
related to this topic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
