SPA101 First Year Spanish-First Term
Details about this class
The time commitment for this course will be 160 minutes in the classroom on campus per week (T/Th 1:30-2:50 pm) plus time spent on studying and completing a homework load appropriate for a 4-credit, college-level course (about two hours outside of class for each credit hour). This time commitment includes both synchronous work (e.g. class meetings, practice with classmates) and asynchronous work (e.g. studying, homework).
Students are highly recommended to take SPA 101 and SPA 111C simultaneously.
SPA 111C is a one-credit conversation course that meets twice a week for 25 minutes (50 min/week). Some SPA 101 classes have a recommended SPA 111C on the schedule because the conversation section meets right before their 101, and it’s taught by the same instructor. If the SPA 101 class that you have decided to take doesn’t have a specific conversation section suggested on the Course Notes, you are welcome to take any 111C that fits your schedule.
Why should I take SPA 111C? In the conversation class, you will have an opportunity to practice what you are learning in SPA 101. You will be working on your listening and speaking skills with classmates, with your instructor’s guidance and support. Students who don’t take 111C will have 10 hours less of practice of the Spanish language than the classmates who take 111C. 101 + 111C is the perfect combination to develop your communicative skills (aural and oral), and communication is the main goal of our SPA program.
There is no additional technology required for this class.
