Section Description

Spanish 2200 (Intermediate II) is designed to integrate all of the knowledge attained in the previous levels with a particular emphasis on honing students' ability to interact with others in both written and spoken Spanish through collaborative group activities. Many of the activities will help develop comprehension skills and a large active vocabulary necessary for advanced level courses. We will review grammar points such as: object pronouns, imperfect/preterit, present perfect, conditional, future, and present subjunctive, and learn: the past perfect, the imperfect subjunctive, present perfect subjunctive, and passive voice. In addition, we will gain practice in developing reading comprehension strategies through study of short literary works, essays and video from the textbook, as well as additional materials from other sources the professor may provide. This section will also enhance students' communicative practice by giving them the opportunity to practice speaking Spanish online with native speakers. Throughout the semester this course will focus on expanding awareness of Spanish-speaking cultures. SPAN 2200 will be taught entirely in Spanish. By the end of the semester you will be able to: 1. Compose and revise written assignments in present and past time frames while expressing personal opinions; 2. Discuss texts using critical reflection and cultural references; 3. Converse about social and cultural topics in all major time frames; 4. Indicate a comprehension of Spanish in personal and social contexts through verbal and written responses; 5. Recognize and discuss some of the major historical events and cultural aspects of the Spanish-speaking world. 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

Section Expectation

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 2-3 hours of coursework outside of it. Thus, in SPAN 2200, a 3-credit course, a student should expect to work at least 6 hours a week outside of the classroom.
