The Computer Lab has moved into the Library - enter thru the door by the Reference Desk.


This program has the lab exercises for all the Gavilan Spanish classes, and gives you access to much of the literature used in class.


This is a comprehensive English/Spanish and Spanish/English dictionary with more than 400,000 entries, a verb conjugator, and a synonym dictionary. 
It can be used stand-alone, or it can be accessed from within MS Word.

Ms Word understands Spanish!
It lets you insert all the Spanish accents with a click of the mouse.
It checks your spelling and grammar both in English and Spanish.
It has a Spanish Thesaurus
And the Dictionary is just a click away - look up any word, insert the translation!
