Spanish I: Course Description

'Spanish I' is taught by Professors Margarita Ribas Groeger and Solivia Marquez and is designed for students who wish to learn the Spanish language in an introductory setting. The primary component of the course is a series of 26 half-hour videos each student is expected to view over the course of the class. These videos teach students how to learn authentic Spanish and provide insight into the various cultures of Spanish-speaking peoples. Students will learn basic pronunciation, grammar and basic language skills, including speaking, reading, writing and comprehension. The final grade is determined by written work completed in class and four quizzes.

Selected resources and activities are available for download for free online. If you are interested in taking this class, please visit the Spanish I homepage.
