Level 1 Beginning Spanish

SPAN 3101-3103-3104, Spanish at Mills SPAN 3101S-3103S-3104S

This course is designed to introduce students to the grammatical structures and vocabulary necessary to express personal meaning on basic topics (e.g., family, daily routines and leisure time) and negotiate basic survival situations (making travel arrangements, ordering meals and making purchases, etc.).  Language topics and functions are integrated into activities that emphasize all four language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing), with special attention given to speaking and listening.  Cultural knowledge that will build a deeper understanding of how Spanish-speaking peoples communicate will be integrated into the course content.
