Overview: Spanish 205 is a review of basic grammar with special emphasis on writing,
speaking, listening, and reading. The course is designed to continue developing your
abilities in the Spanish language through cultural components, such as readings, movies,
oral presentations, etc. All classes will be conducted in Spanish.
Daily Work:
Monday-Friday 9:30-11:30 A.M.
Monday-Thursday 1:00-3:00 PM
There will be no afternoon class on Fridays.
General Procedures: I expect you to treat SPA 205 as your full-time job, working at
least 40 hours per week on the course. Daily readings should be done BEFORE the
class as well as homework assigned from the textbook or worksheets. I do not
expect you to know all the vocabulary in the assigned material, but I want you to
work at it diligently, have questions about the reading, and show that you have been
thinking about the meaning of the text. There will be quizzes to test your work
outside the classroom every day. You will be assigned two or three short oral
presentations each week.
For your final oral presentation, prepare it well ahead of time. Don’t wait until
the last minute to work on it. Try to make your presentation an example of your
best Spanish. It has to be interesting and motivating. Talk to your professor the
second week of class to determine your topic and to start working on your oral
project.
Come well prepared to participate actively in class. You will receive participation
points for each day’s contribution.
Homework is due at 9:30 am every day. Assignments will be given in class, based
on the needs of the class.
If you miss a class is your responsibility to find out what is going to be collected
the following day.
You will write three compositions in class based on the movies we watch together.
You will also take three exams to test your mastery of the readings, the grammer
and listening comprehension.
Book required: De Paseo, Curso Intermedio de Español, fourth edition, a good
Spanish- English dictionary, a notebook for writing homework and taking notes in
class.
Recommended: a good Spanish- English dictionary and a notebook for writing
homework and taking notes in class.
Recommended strategies: Study on your own first, then, find a group and go over
some materials. If you think you are behind the level of the class, look for a tutor.
Join the conversation group. It is a good way to practice your Spanish. Also, join
the Spanish Club. Visit me during my office hours. I will also be happy to address
your needs before and after class. Don’t hesitate to contact me via e-mail with
questions or concerns. Finally, watch TV in Spanish (on campus we have two
channels), watch movies in Spanish, listen to songs, and use the Internet to find
more exercises to practice all four skills: reading, listening, writing, and speaking.
!!!!!!!!! CELL PHONE AND HEADPHONES POLICY: YOU MUST LEAVE
YOUR CELL PHONES AND/OR HEADPHONES IN THE BOX I PROVIDE AS
YOU ENTER THE CLASSROOM. ALL CELL PHONES MUST BE TUREND
OFF.DURING THE BREAKS AND AFTER CLASS YOU MAY RETRIEVE
YOUR PROPERTY !!!!!!!!!
Absence Policy: Because of the nature if the Intermediate Spanish format, any
absence will lower a student’s numerical grade. If a student has a signed official
medical excuse from the Elbersole Health Center or a faculty-approved absence (to
represent the College at an off-campus event or to observe a religious holiday)
communicated to the professor during the first three days of class, efforts will be
made to recoup any participation points lost.
Learning Differences: If you have a documented learning difference and have sent
your documentation to the College, please indentify yourself to me in the first three
days of class so that I can ensure that the appropriate accommodations are made.
