SPAN102 is the second of the four-semester sequence in the Spanish Language Program.  It is designed for students who a) have successfully completed SPAN 101 or b) who have placed into the course via the Spanish Department placement exam. Students further develop strategies for reading, listening, writing, and participating in everyday conversations.  The course expands students’ ability to engage with the cultural diversity of the Spanish-speaking world through authentic materials and through activities that address a range of topics such as sports, pastimes, food, health, professions, clothing, and the environment. By the end of the semester, students can expect to have reached the Intermediate Mid level of the ACTFL scale, and proceed to SPAN 201. The course consists of two 80-minute sessions per week with the lecturer and one 50-minute session with the language assistant. This course may not be counted toward the Spanish Major. The class will be conducted entirely in Spanish.

Prerequisite: SPAN 101 or Spanish Placement Exam. Limited to 16 students per section. Fall Semester: TBD and assistants. Spring Semester: Lecturer Piazza and assistants.

How to handle overenrollment: Priority will be given to pre-registered students.

Students who enroll in this course will likely encounter and be expected to engage in the following intellectual skills, modes of learning, and assessment: Oral and written projects in Spanish, in-class quizzes and oral exams, online conversations with native Spanish speakers, group work, instruction in Spanish, emphasis on writing, reading, speaking, and listening in Spanish.
