This class is NOT a class for students who have never studied Spanish. The text that will be used is a text for university level “beginning” students. The text as its name indicates is about the 21 countries where Spanish is spoken. The chapters focus on history, cultural expressions (music, art, literature) and current events. Students will be asked to take part in expanding the topics suggested by the text.
The text is “Mundo 21” 4th Edition (ISBN 13: 978-0-547-17131-9). This text is available from many on-line book dealers and should not cost the student more than $15.00 for a USED book. You will not need the CD originally included with the text.
This class will accommodate learners who want to sprint and those who prefer to walk: The walkers will have time to read the assigned articles at their own pace. The sprinters will have the opportunity to lead discussions to a consensus and, if they choose, to do oral presentations.
An Advanced Spanish class is also being offered this Fall. As a student you cannot participate in both classes. Please read the description of the Advanced Spanish class.
