SPAN101 is the first of a four-semester sequence in the Spanish Language Program. It is designed for students a) with no prior knowledge of Spanish, b) who have studied Spanish for one year or less in high school, and c) who have scored 1 or 2 on the AP Spanish Language exam. Students develop personal forms of expression and basic strategies for reading, listening, writing, and participating in everyday conversations. The course introduces students to the diverse cultures of the Spanish-speaking world through authentic materials (songs, films, poems, short stories, etc.), as well as activities that address a range of personal and immediate-needs topics and socio-cultural situations such as family life and daily routines. By the end of the semester, students can expect to have reached the Intermediate Low level of the ACTFL scale, and proceed to SPAN 102. Three hours per week with the lecturer, plus two hours with the language assistant. This course may not be counted toward the Spanish Major. The class will be conducted entirely in Spanish.
Fall and spring semesters. Limited to 15 students per section. Professor Sánchez-Naranjo, Visiting Lecturer Dixon, and Assistants.
If Overenrolled: Priority will be given to pre-registered students.
