Dates: July 5 - August 12, 2022

Section Description

This class will be taught remotely using Microsoft Teams. It will be asynchronous so we will not have meetings as a class. However, during my virtual office hours in Teams (twice a week), I will provide opportunities to meet me to practice Spanish or ask me questions about the topics from the textbook. These opportunities will be in addition to the online oral/speaking activities from the Supersite that you will be completing during the course. SPAN 001 is the first course in a two-semester sequence of beginning Spanish. It is designed for the student with little or no prior knowledge of the language. The course emphasizes speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to use their newly acquired skills to communicate in Spanish in a realistic and culturally appropriate manner. Be aware that in this class you will have to memorize and practice vocabulary and grammar structures from the textbook which is also a skill needed to become fluent in Spanish.

Section Expectation

The University of Vermont respects the Department of Education’s definition of a credit hour. For every hour spent in class, you are expected to spend approximately 2 hours outside of class. Thus, in SPAN 001, a 4-credit course, you should plan to spend about 8 hours a week outside of the classroom preparing assignments and studying.


Weekly quizzes, HW assignments (Supersite activities), etc.
