Undergraduate Courses 2020-2021

Spanish

Beginning Spanish

Open , Seminar—Year

This course will be conducted in Spanish. Placement test is not required. Students should attend the scheduled orientation meetings during interview and registration week.

This course is designed to enable students with no previous exposure to Spanish to achieve essential communication skills, while providing the basic grammatical, lexical, and syntactical structures to do so effectively. From the start, oral interaction will be stressed in class and reinforced through pair or small-group activities. Students will be exposed to the diverse culture of the Spanish-speaking world through songs, films, and poetry that complement the learned grammatical structures. In addition, students are required to meet with the instructor in small groups for one hour each week (small-group conference) and to attend a weekly conversation session with a language tutor.

Intermediate Spanish I: Latin America, A Mosaic of Cultures

Intermediate , Seminar—Year

This course will be taught entirely in Spanish. Open to first-year students, as well as sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

This course is intended for students who have had at least one year of college-level Spanish or equivalent and who wish to review and expand the fundamentals of the Spanish language while exploring the rich cultural mosaic of Latin America. We will also pay special attention to oral communication and the expansion of new vocabulary. And we will explore different writing formats to create a dynamic dialogue among grammar, literature, and culture to contextualize multiple meanings while increasing fluency in every aspect of language production. For conference, students will have a chance to explore and develop topics related to Hispanic culture. To enrich the student’s exposure to the mosaic of Latin American cultures, we’ll try to take advantage of our local resources, such as museums, libraries, theatre, and, if given the opportunity, an intro to local Latin cuisine. Students are also required to meet weekly with one of our language assistants to practice their speaking and oral comprehension.
