SPAN 101 is an introduction to Spanish and Spanish-American cultures. This course is recommended for students who have either no previous training in Spanish or no more than two years of high school Spanish. It gives the student a basic understanding of and ability to use the language. Grammar is used as a point of departure for development of oral and written skills.
This course strives to teach students to understand sentences and common expressions and to communicate in simple terms simple aspects of their background (e.g., very basic personal and family information), the immediate environment (shopping, local geography, employment), and matters of immediate need.
This course prepares students for Spanish II (SPAN 120). 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, Lecturer Velázquez-Zvierkova, and Assistants.
If Overenrolled: Priority will be given to pre-registered students.
