Welcome to Spanish 102, the semester that follows 101. Please read this information thoroughly. Metas ( goals ) : The goals of Spanish 102 are various. The first is to develop some basic communicative skills in Spanish as a second language. These include but are not limited to the following sample abilities: describing leisure activities talking about events in the past expressing your likes and dislikes talking about what you did last week and contrasting that with what you used to do as a child giving and receiving directions A second goal is to develop some rudimentary knowledge about cultural differences between the U.S. and the Spanish-speaking world. Some examples are: holidays in the Spanish-speaking world geography and culture of South America important historical events in the Spanish-speaking world differences in how birthdays and other important occasions are celebrated differences in tipping and other customs in restaurants and hotels Do not expect this course to be only about grammar and vocabulary. Although you will be learning grammar and vocabulary to achieve the above goals, they are not the focal point of this course. You will be tested on the above, so studying and preparation cannot be limited to studying grammar and vocabulary! Quin puede tomar este curso? (Who can take this course?)
