Course Overview

    Spanish 1 is an introductory course for students with little or no knowledge of the Spanish language. This course will emphasize verbal communication as a primary means of communication followed by supportive grammar development.  The students will be in contact with the Spanish language since day one, as the Spanish language will be used as much as possible in the classroom.  This will help the student become familiar with the sound of Spanish words and get used to the new language, while contributing to the Spanish listening-speaking environment. In class, students will not only be actively participating in communicative activities with their classmates but also will be supported with an intense grammar component of the language.
