Course Description

Spanish I targets elementary-level learners. The aim is to introduce learners with no previous knowledge of Spanish, to the Spanish language and culture through practical use of the language, with a particular emphasis on oral communication.

Spanish II and Spanish III target elementary-level non-beginner learners. As with Spanish I, emphasis will be on oral communication but writing will be introduced through a range of exercises.

Intended Learning Outcomes

By the end of the semester, students should be able to:

  • gain an introductory insight into Spanish language and Spanish culture;
  • develop basic intuitions about Spanish morphology and syntax and learn basic grammar patterns;
  • understand and produce simple messages in Spanish;

  • acquire a sufficiently accurate pronunciation and intonation of Spanish to be understood by native speakers of the language;
  • understand and produce short texts about themselves, their family and the world around them;
