Syllabus for Basic Spanish

General Description: ¡Bienvenidos! This is an introductory course to both the Spanish language and the cultures where the Spanish language is spoken. This course is modeled on the communicative approach where emphasis is placed on communicating a message through meaning-bearing input and structured output rather than repetition and rote memorization. While it is still important for you to study vocabulary and produce the language, our approach will be directed toward the exploration and deeper understanding of the language.

Course Objectives: The overarching objectives of this course are to develop basic communicative skills in Spanish as a second language and to develop some rudimentary knowledge about the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. These goals will be accomplished through the following:

•Student will be able to describe the world that surrounds him/her in the present tense, compare and contrast, talk about events in present and planned future events, and give commands.

•Speaking: Student will mimic pronunciation modeled by instructor, Sol y Viento video, and on student website. Student will respond to feedback and provide pronunciation feedback to peers. Student will use Spanish almost exclusively. If the student lacks the specific lexical knowledge to express an idea, student will develop the ability to maneuver within the same context by using Spanish and gesticulation rather than falling back on English. Student’s speaking will be evaluated daily during output activities as part of their participation score and twice during the semester via oral interviews.

•Listening: The majority of the course will be taught in Spanish. Student will be

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Where does it come from?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
