DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE:
This course is part of the first year experience in Spanish and is specially designed for
students who have had no previous contact with the language or no more than one year of

speaking, reading and writing), and to prepare students for further study in the language.
The discussion of distinctive cultural aspects of the Hispanic world is an integral part of
this course.
OBJECTIVES:
At the end of the course, successful students will be able to communicate in highly
predictable common daily settings, and have achieved a mastery of the grammatical
concepts and vocabulary through study and continuous oral and written practice. At the

Greetings and good-byes
Asking for and providing information
Expressing needs
Asking about and expressing location
Asking about and describing persons, places, and things
Expressing where and when events take place
