Spanish Lang. Through Culture I

  • Summer

    June 15 - July 31, 2020 For All Students Registration closed

Course Overview

This intensive summer course will give students with no prior exposure to Spanish the vocabulary, grammatical background and communicative skills that they need to jump into Spanish 2 at their schools. Students will master greetings and introductions, daily routines, likes and dislikes, numbers, telling time, question formation and other fundamental communicative functions. Students will learn to communicate using common regular and irregular verbs in the present tense and the immediate future with ir. Students will also develop a broad-based vocabulary related to common settings including school and the classroom, home and family life and others. The primary focus of the course will be to develop novice interpersonal and presentational speaking and comprehension skills. Through synchronous and asynchronous interactions with classmates and instructors, students will practice their budding language skills in a flexible and playful online environment. This course will replicate what is typically a yearlong course, so students should expect to dedicate 15-20 hours per week during the 7-week summer session.

Required Resource: This course will use EntreCulturas 1 from Wayside Publishing. Students should purchase the text before the first day of class.
