This Spanish course is a continuation of First-Year Spanish, Part 1 and introduces the Spanish language and culture (focusing on Peru, Bolivia, and Paraguay). It is structured to help students practice speaking using the vocabulary, grammar, and cultural information that they learn. Conversation practice and weekly Today’s Specials (grammar, culture and vocabulary lessons) happen in the Conversation Café where students will interact with other students and course TAs. This Spanish course includes many interactive activities and live one-on-one speaking appointments. This is the second course in a six-part Spanish series (SPAN 041, SPAN 043, SPAN 051, SPAN 053, SPAN 061, and SPAN 063).
Students will need access to a computer with high speed Internet access, a microphone, speakers (or headphones), and a webcam.
There are no resubmissions or retakes on instructor-graded assignments, unit quizzes, the midterm quiz or the final exam. On speaking appointments, lowest score may be dropped. You must complete the speaking appointment in each unit before you can move on to the next unit.
