Welcome to Spanish 101, one of the most fun and yet challenging courses you will take at UIC. What follows is basic information about the course. Please read it thoroughly. Questions? Please ask! Metas ( goals ) The goals of Spanish 101 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 your normal weekly and weekend routines and describing what you do to relax talking about your family and family resemblances using descriptions of physical and personality features describing foods you eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner A second goal is to develop some rudimentary knowledge about cultural differences between the U.S. and the Spanish-speaking world. Some examples are: differences in daily routines, including meals and typical activities differences in where and how people shop differences in university systems Do not expect this course to be a course about grammar and vocabulary learning. 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! ¿Quién puede tomar este curso? (Who can take this course?)
