COURSE INFORMATION
This course is based on the communicative approach. This course develops a basic proficiency in
Spanish and familiarity with the Hispanic culture through practice in the use of the basic language
skills and acquisition of vocabulary. The goals of the course are to develop listening, speaking,
reading, and writing competency in Spanish and to strive for a comfortable level of communication
in the target language. Real-life applications and interactions with other students and the teacher are
stressed as a means of proficiency in communication. Culture study of Spanish-speaking people
helps to make students aware of the current global and historical significance of the language being
studied.

 No credit will be given for late work. If an assignment is not turned in on time, the student
will receive a zero and will not be allowed to make up that assignment. If a student turns in a
major assignment late, that student will receive a zero for their grade, come to AA, and will
be allowed to turn in the assignment within a week of the original due date for a retest grade
(70%).
 Students have five days after excused absences to make up work. If a student fails to make
up assignments in the allotted time, he or she will receive a zero for those assignments.
Electronic and Online Translators
You are expected to do YOUR OWN work. Use of online translators or using another person to do your
work is NEVER acceptable and is easily detected. This is cheating and will result in an automatic ZERO on
the assignment.
If you are working on an assignment at home and do not have a dictionary, please use a dictionary
website instead of a translation website.
http://www.wordreference.com/English_Spanish_Dictionary.asp is a good resource
