Emerson Hall E504
This course develops communicative abilities in Spanish and strives to help students understand the cultural context in which the language is used. Students learn to communicate through speaking, listening, reading and writing activities by reviewing and learning new vocabulary and grammar. The study of Hispanic cultures and societies (through readings) is an integral part of the course and is thus emphasized. Classroom activities are highly interactive and focus on speaking and listening, but many homework assignments involve informal writing (to develop fluency) and brief compositions (to develop accuracy). Language Lab activities may also be used to improve listening skills and pronunciation.
