The class will increase vocabulary, grammar, and cultural knowledge to improve on the reading, listening, speaking and writing skills presented in SPAN 101. In this course the study of verb tenses and constructions is completed. Various facets of Spanish-speaking cultures will be analyzed via cross-cultural comparisons. In addition to classroom discussion, students are required to complete at least 27 hours of intensive individualized oral-aural practice in the Language Laboratory via interactive websites, audio CDs, video programs, and films. The Language Laboratory work focuses on vocabulary, grammar, and cultural practices. This class is designed for those students who do not have a Spanish language background who wish to learn to speak Spanish or who seek a degree in the Spanish language.
