SPANISH 101-A : Elementary Spanish


This course is part one of a three-quarter sequence based on the competency (or “can do”) and the communicative approaches. The course is designed for adults who wish to learn Spanish in a dynamic way and it is designed to help students achieve pragmatic, linguistic and cultural competencies adequate for a beginning level. This is a student-centered course in which the student will learn how to interact in the target language in basic real-life situations, both orally and in writing, as well as to develop the necessary skills to become an independent learner outside of the classroom. The intercultural nature of all the activities and tasks to be completed by the student will also help the student to become more aware of the rich and varied cultures within the Spanish-speaking world. The topics and textbook are aligned with the interests of adult learners. The SPANISH 101 sequence is introductory; only students who have never taken Spanish before should enroll in the courses.
