Listening comprehension will be practiced using visuals, audio, and video segments as aids to comprehension. In order to develop understanding of the spoken language, the class will be conducted primarily in Spanish. You are not expected to understand every word the teacher uses. Concentrate on being able to follow what’s happening. The principal aims of this beginning-level Spanish language course are to develop communicative skills and to acquire inter-disciplinary knowledge by following the National Standards in foreign language learning: communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities. You will notice that each chapter is organized around a cultural and practical theme, with vocabulary, grammar, and culture working together as an interactive unit. In this course, Spanish will be the only communication tool and authentic materials will be used as much as possible. Finally, the course requires continuous and independent work out of the classroom to consolidate the knowledge and linguistic skills developed during class time. There is a lot of material to cover, meaning that the pace of the course may feel fast at times. If we all work together on a daily basis, you will have a successful outcome at the end of the semester.
