SPAN 053 is a continuation of SPAN 051. Students will focus on developing speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills, with appropriate grammatical principles as well as additional insights into culture (focusing on Venezuela, Argentina, Uruguay, and Chile). Conversation practice happens in the Conversation Café where students will interact with other students and course TAs. This new Spanish course includes many interactive activities and also includes an instructor-hosted wiki and live one-on-one speaking appointments. This is the fourth 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 (including the midterm quiz and cumulative review 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 take the unit quiz.
