This course is meant to give students a command of basic Spanish grammar and language structure as well as knowledge of a variety of Hispanic cultures. The class is also designed to give ample practice in the four important skill areas in learning a language: speaking, listening comprehension, reading, and writing. Students will enhance their command of the Spanish language through listening exercises, homework, quizzes and tests, and short writing and reading assignments. Also, activities will expand understanding of Hispanic cultures through Spanish language films and music, group projects, and current news from the Spanish speaking world.
