Spanish - Second Year I
The Spanish Intermediate sequence of courses is designed for students who have developed conversational Spanish language skills. Communication in class takes place entirely in Spanish. These courses build upon previous work to strengthen communication skills and fluency in Spanish.
Students must know the mechanics of sentence structure; know the present and past tense conjugations for regular and irregular verbs (indicative mode) and be able to use them in conversation and writing activities. The main point of the quarter will be on using acquired language skills (sentence structure, verb conjugation, and grammatical rules) in conversational and writing activities in class. A general review of selected topics will include: ser-estar; pronombres directos-indirectos-reflexivos; diferencia pretarito-imperfecto, and presente-pasado perfecto; and other topics as needed. Students should be able to engage in basic conversations and be able to understand and convey information in Spanish about themselves and their everyday activities.
Our work will be conducted remotely, using Canvas and Zoom. Students will need access to a computer with a strong internet connection. Students should expect four hours of synchronous (scheduled) time per week.
Entry in fall quarter requires the equivalent of one year of college-level study of Spanish language.
