Primary Instructor:

The goal of this course is to provide students with a basic but comprehensive knowledge of Spanish morphology and syntax, functional vocabulary, and practice in speaking and writing. The lecture gives a thorough introduction to Spanish grammatical structures as used in cultural contexts. Students also meet in small daily discussion groups for intensive practice of the material. Upon completion of this course students are able to understand non-edited journalistic texts without the aid of a dictionary, and oral passages of medium length, and can also initiate and sustain a general conversation with a native speaker.

Course Requirements:

Attendance is required both in the lectures and the discussions. Students must attend co-curricular activities (lunch tables and coffee hours) at least three times a week, more if judged necessary. In order to receive credits for the course, students must pass the final exam, which tests the four skills: writing, speaking, reading, and listening.

Intended Audience:

RCLANG 194 is open to all UM students, but priority is given to RC students. Students with no prior or very little background in Spanish can only take this class in Winter.

Class Format:

The course meets two hours a day, four days a week. The lecture component introduces vocabulary and grammatical structures in a situational context with a cultural perspective. In the discussions, students meet in small groups for intensive practice of the material with a strong emphasis on speaking.
