Level 1.5 High Beginning Spanish
SPAN 3151-3153-3154, Spanish at Mills 3151S-3153S-3154S
Designed for students with some previous study of Spanish or another Romance language, this level builds on and rapidly expands control of basic grammatical structures and vocabulary. Students consolidate their ability to negotiate basic survival situations in the target-language cultures and prepare themselves for continued study of the language. New language functions will be presented in meaningful activities that emphasize all four language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. Cultural knowledge that will build a deeper understanding of how Spanish-speaking peoples communicate is a crucial component of the course content.
