SP 111 - Fundamentals of Spanish I (3)

Designed to introduce the student to the study of grammar and vocabulary, aural comprehension, oral ability, and the reading and writing of simple Spanish with the end goal of being able to communicate effectively with Spanish speakers and to understand/develop cultural empathy. This course will focus on language, as well as the many facets of several Hispanic cultures. It will help the student to develop all of his/her language skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Because of the strong connection of language to culture and identity, some cultural nuances that he/she has never before considered will become apparent through language learning and practice with interaction and communication in a multicultural environment. This class will emphasize the learning of Spanish for real-world purposes through introductory grammar and basic vocabulary, writings, texts, and skits. 2015 CORE: Social Justice & Civic Life, Acquire, Global Studies.
