Section Description

Intermediate Language Study I (Spanish 051) is a course designed to provide a communicative learning experience that works to expand students' ability to interact with others successfully in Spanish. To achieve these goals, we will devote approximately half of our time to grammar and vocabulary review, and the other half to activities that are geared toward helping students develop the all-important ability to make use of Spanish in their own lives, both inside and outside the classroom, through the development of successful reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension skills. By the end of Span 051, you will be able to: ? speak with your peers about things you have done or would like to do ? speak informally about your opinions regarding a variety of issues and topics relevant to you and your community ? listen to and follow the main ideas of extended conversations on familiar topics ? comprehend the main events detailed in cultural or historical interviews, movies, or oral narratives ? write academic comparisons and reactions with thoughtful use of tense, aspect, and word choice ? read and comprehend authentic articles, descriptions, and brief stories written about cultural, social, and personal topics that employ a wide range of grammatical structures and more sophisticated vocabulary

Section Expectation

Span 051 meets 3 times per week and students must attend class everyday. Your grade is based on quizzes, exams, projects, attendance and class participation. Texto: IMAGINA espa?ol sin barreras 2nd Edition Blanco * Tocaimaza-Hatch ISBN 978-1-60576-513-6 Spanish/English Dictionary 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 051, a 3-credit course, a student should expect to work at least 6 hours a week outside of the classroom.

Evaluation

Grades will be based on attendance and participation, weekly assignments, a midterm exam, and a final project. Please see syllabus for details
