Spanish language


Entry into the fall and winter quarters requires proficiency in Spanish language equivalent to the successful completion of Beginning Spanish I (for fall) or Beginning Spanish II (for winter).  Contact the instructor for an assessment of proficiency.
This two-quarter sequence completes the first year of Spanish language study.  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.  Students seeking to continue in second-year Spanish after this sequence will have to wait until summer or the following fall to begin the intermediate Spanish sequence.
