(1 credit) This initial entry in a planned program of multi-levels of languages, introduces a wide variety of new instructional features to our system. Through the study of Spanish I, students will have an opportunity to learn to speak the language and to experience the culture of Spanish-speaking countries. The primary focus of the course is to foster skills that will enable students to interact in daily life with other Spanish speakers and to communicate when traveling to Spanish-speaking regions.
Each lesson in Spanish I has interactive quizzes and games, and the entire course has audio support with over 1500 audio files. Students will be able to practice and test themselves as they read each lesson before taking the submission. The scope of this course will include mastery of the present tense and essential rules grammar, along with the development of an extensive vocabulary for use in both oral and written expression.
For this course, students and teachers will need computers with either audio speakers or headphones. (31 lessons and submissions, 4 exams, 3 labs)
