There's a few ways you could go about this...
1. You could download the package "dict-freedict-spa-eng" from
synaptic, and plug that into the "Dictionary" tool under
"Applications > Office"... but this may not be exactly what
you're looking for, seeing as since you're taking a spanish
class you're probably goign to be in more frequent need of a
translator than a dictionary with definitions...
2. You can check out "Freespeak" (search Add/Remove for it), which
is a frontend for several web-based translators which you can
use to translate blocks of text at a whim
3. You can just go straight to the source and visit a free online
web translator to get quick fairly accurate translations for
words and phrases. My favorite for this is freetranslation.com
or translate.google.com, but theres other good ones out there.
4. Install and try Gnome Translate (also found in Add/Remove). It's
basically an offline version of some online translators that
runs on libtranslate. I tried it out real fast and it seemed
Hope that helps!
