Section Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION Spanish 2100 is designed to provide a communicative learning experience that works to expand students' ability to interact with others successfully in Spanish. In this course, we will devote approximately half of our time to grammar and vocabulary review, and the other half to activities that are geared toward helping students develop the all-important ability to make use of Spanish in their own lives, both inside and outside the classroom, through the development of successful reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension skills. This course will be taught in Spanish. The University of Vermont respects the Department of Education’s definition of a credit hour: for every hour spent in a classroom, a student is expected to complete approximately 2 hours of coursework outside of it. Thus, in SPAN 051, a 3-credit course, a student should expect to work about 6 hours a week outside of the classroom. Important: Within three months prior to enrolling in your first language class at UVM, you need to take the online placement test (even if you haven't studied the language) and enroll in the course level recommended. Note that if you enroll in a class without taking the test, or enroll in a class below your recommended level, the system will disenroll you from the course (you will receive an email notification if this occurs). Find the placement test at: go.uvm.edu/flp COURSE OBJECTIVES • utilize new vocabulary about social relations, city life, media, family life, and the environment in a variety of speaking and writing tasks • respond in writing and orally to prompts/questions using present, past, future, and conditional tenses and the subjunctive • review verbs like gustar, ser/estar, reflexive verbs, por/para, pronouns, and commands • give advice/recommendations using commands and the present subjunctive • converse and express opinions about a variety of issues and topics relevant to you and your community • listen to and comprehend content from extended conversations, movies, videos and/or podcasts • read and comprehend authentic and more sophisticated texts about cultural, social, and personal topics COURSE TEXTBOOK: Imagina: Español sin barreras. 4th Ed.
