Entry into the spring quarter requires proficiency in Spanish language equivalent to the successful completion of Beginning Spanish I.  Contact the instructor for an assessment of proficiency.
This two-quarter sequence of courses covers two-thirds of the first year of Spanish.  Students will gain a basic foundation in Spanish vocabulary and grammar and will focus on speaking, listening, writing, and reading activities to acquire essential vocabulary and develop communication skills. The course is taught primarily in Spanish and involves work in small groups.  Many aspects of Latino and Spanish culture will be presented throughout.  Some homework activities require Internet access.  The final quarter of first-year Spanish will be available in fall quarter and may be offered during summer quarter.
