This course has been designed for students who have had no previous experience with Spanish language and culture. Students will have the opportunity to learn functional grammar, vocabulary and cultural concepts which they can apply in interactions at work, with clients, or during travel. All language skills will be practiced: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students will be required to practice weekly speaking and listening skills in real time over the Internet with the instructor and/or teaching assistants. Students should be available for 45 minutes for oral practices scheduled between 7:30-9:00 PM EST at least twice a week. Special accommodations will be made for army students. Students will learn about the cultures of Spanish-speaking peoples through links to other Internet sites such as newspapers, chat rooms, or web sites appropriate to topics they are learning. Because of the intensive nature of learning all aspects of Spanish (reading, writing, listening, speaking, culture), students should be prepared to devote a significant amount of time to the course. Students who do have advanced knowledge of Spanish can not take this course.
Note: This course incorporates web conferencing using Blackboard Collaborate.
