Course Description:

Spanish 101 takes a hands-on, student-oriented approach to the acquisition of the Spanish language. Students are responsible for a large part of their learning and should devote ample time to study and review outside of class. Class time is utilized for active practice, interaction with other students, and cultural studies. The course aims to develop competence in listening, speaking, reading, and writing the language while at the same time understanding its history, peoples, and cultures.

Student Learning Goals:

  • effectively organize study time
  • routinely review new vocabulary and grammar concepts
  • communicate with classmates about familiar topics
