The focus in class is on using Spanish to exchange real-life information and ideas, and on the functional grammar and vocabulary to accomplish this. The class will realize this focus through the four traditional skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. It will also include an introduction to Hispanic culture. Beginners and students with fewer than two years of high school Spanish should register for this course. (Catalog, p. 150.)
IMPORTANT: This is a beginning Spanish course. Students who speak Spanish at home, or have gained significant experience through study-abroad, mission, etc., should enroll in SPAN 102, 201, 202, or 203. Please come see me if you have any doubts about which class you should be in.
