Elementary Language Courses

Students who have begun language study in high school must take a placement test to determine whether they should enroll in a first-year (101), first-year review (103), or a second-year language course. We also recommend that students who began language study at another college or university take the placement test. Please check the Evaluations & Examinations website (http://www.umich.edu/~eande/place/sched.htm) for placement test dates and locations.

Demand for elementary language courses can be high, and students may not be able to enroll in the class of their choosing. Please see your general academic advisor for help in electing courses.

Attendance in elementary language courses is mandatory. Students who miss either of the first two meetings of the class may be dropped from the course by the department, to allow other students to register.

This course will be a query into the nature of the Latino community through the topic of culture. Not only will we be discussing Latino culture in a seminar setting, but we will be providing two hours a week of community service in after-school tutoring to the Latino community in southwest Detroit. The goals of this course, then, are two-fold, and encompass the objectives of both a service-learning course and a fourth-term Spanish language course. You will be exploring and "testing" different cultural understandings of service, including, and especially, your own. This course is not just about providing a service in terms of logging hours, but to go beyond, through analysis, reflection and evaluation, to address the variety of needs of the Latino culture in our community.
