SPAN 2100 is a 3 credit, first semester intermediate Spanish course that focuses on building students’ ability to communicate successfully in the target language. To achieve this goal, the course introduces new vocabulary and grammar structures and reviews other ones covered in elementary levels. It also works to improve students’ reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension skills. The course will be taught in Spanish. All students should have taken at least SPAN 1200 at UVM or an equivalent course elsewhere or should have taken the language placement test* to enroll in this course. As a GC2 designated course, SPAN 2100 also fulfills the GC2 Developing Global Citizens requirement. *Language Placement Exam: 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. 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 can find the placement test at: go.uvm.edu/flp

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 2100, a 3-credit course, a student should expect to work about 6 hours a week outside of the classroom.
