Details about this class

  • Students are highly recommended to take SPA 102 and SPA 112C simultaneously.  
  • SPA 102 is a four-credit course that meets twice a week for 1hr and 20 min (2 hr 40 min/week).
  • SPA 112C is a one-credit conversation course that meets twice a week for 25 minutes (50 min/week).
    • SPA 102, CRN 41598, that you see recommended in the course notes, is taught by the same instructor as this conversation section, and it occurs right after this conversation class. If the SPA 102 class that you have decided to take doesn’t have a specific conversation section suggested in the Course Notes, you are welcome to take any 112C that fits your schedule.
  • Why should I take SPA 112C?  In the conversation class, you will have an opportunity to practice what you are learning in SPA 102. You will be working on your listening and speaking skills with classmates, with your instructor’s guidance and support. Students who don’t take 112C will have 10 hours less of practice of the Spanish language than the classmates who take 112C. 102 + 112C is the perfect combination to develop your communicative skills (aural and oral), and communication is the main goal of our SPA program.
