This course is a continuation of the essentials of the Spanish language: reading, listening, speaking, and writing skills. The skills learned in Spanish 101S will be reviewed. The class will increase vocabulary, grammar, and cultural knowledge to improve on the reading, listening, speaking and writing skills presented in Spanish 101S. In this course the study or verb tenses and constructions is completed. It is designed to further improve the language skills of students with a Spanish language background. 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 have a Spanish language background and want to develop a better written and oral competency in the language, or who seek a degree in the Spanish language.
