Also, this course will continue and further explore the cultural exposure to the wonders found in the Spanish world.

Course Objectives:

This course stresses the usage of appropriate Spanish and enables the student in the following areas:

  • To further develop speaking and listening skills learned in Spanish I and II.

  • To further build writing using appropriate Spanish grammar (different verb tenses, adjectives, nouns, adverbs, etc.) at a basic/intermediate level in variety of new settings.

  • To further build reading and comprehension skills of elementary/intermediate Spanish.

  • To continue the exposure to the Spanish culture that started in Spanish I and Spanish II.

A smart suggestion is to begin your own Spanish Dictionary/Glossary so that as you learn new vocabulary you add it to your glossary so you maintain a working glossary of what you are expected to know!
