Course List



By the end of Spanish I, students should be able to communicate on a basic level, using present, future, and preterit tense verbs and common phrases to meet basic demands of Spanish communication. This course is designed to develop all five language skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing and cultural competence through authentic materials and those that are designed for second language learners. The goal of the Spanish I course is to develop a solid foundation for the ability to communicate in Spanish. A student’s background, aptitude, and application will determine the level of language proficiency acquired.
