COURSE DESCRIPTION
Advanced Intermediate Spanish is a three-credit intermediate level course, the forth in a fourcourse sequence which fulfills the language requirement at many universities. The goal of this
course is to bridge the gap between elementary and advanced levels in the further development of
listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.
COURSE OBJECTIVES
This course will develop students’ ability to 1) communicate satisfactorily in Spanish in everyday
practical situations that may occur either in the U.S or abroad, 2) continue acquiring some of the
skills necessary for effective reading in Spanish, and 3) write Spanish with a satisfactory level of
accuracy. This course will enable students to communicate in everyday situations, narrate in the
past, present, and future, and master other complex structures (such as hypothetical situations and
express desires and requests), increase vocabulary, and improve comprehension and fluency.
Students will be exposed to aspects of Hispanic culture and literature via films, music, current
events and written texts. Three key components that will assist students to attain these three goals
are vocabulary, language awareness, and practice/participation. Class will be conducted entirely in
Spanish. Lessons will be structured in such a way as to help students participate comfortably on a
daily basis.

Participation (20%): Your attendance, daily preparation, and active participation in class
will not only contribute to your learning, but are also important factors in determining your
grade. Students are expected to participate in Spanish only during each class period. Speaking
in English will result in a zero (0) for the day’s participation grade. A-level participation means
actively participating in individual, small-group, and large-group activities as well as
respecting classmates by not speaking when they are speaking. Points will also be deducted for
using electronic devices, packing up early, etc. Students will be evaluated according to the
5

-Often initiated interactions by responding to classmates' comments and instructor’s questions.

-Actively participated in all activities

-Was usually an active listener and only rarely didn’t listen while others talked. The student
never interrupted the class.
-Generally contributed actively to getting the task done in group work
-Came to class rather prepared.

Homework that is incomplete or late will not be accepted. Students will be assigned to

points from Tareas) and the Student Activities Manual for every chapter. There may also be
assignments related to vocabulary, grammar, and culture that are not found in the textbook
but rather are provided by the instructor. These activities will solidify the students’
knowledge and prepare them for the exams. The online exercises and recordings for the
listening comprehension sections of the Student Activities Manual can be found at the
textbook website, www.prenhall.com/identidades
6
Quizzes (10%): Five quizzes will be given periodically over the vocabulary under study. See
syllabus for dates.

Capítulo 10 and another section which is comprehensive.
Field Work (20%)
Field lab attendance and participation is mandatory for all students enrolled in this course.
Please do not book individual travel plans or a Semester at Sea sponsored trip on the day of
your field lab. Intermediate Spanish students will have the opportunity to meet other students
from Vietnam who are studying Spanish in a HCMC Tourism School so that they can
practice their language skills while in engaging in activities on site-seeing. The idea is to
exchange as much cultural information as possible from both countries, USA and Vietnam,
in Spanish.
Objectives:
1. Each student will be paired with a local student with whom they will interact in
Spanish.
2. After that port visit, at the end of the semester, students will present orally in Spanish
about all the information they gathered and learned from the cultural-linguistic exchange
experience in port, to be evaluated according to the rubric provided at the beginning of
the semester.
7
3. They will need to use the past tense; they will need to include cultural information;
they may use pictures or recordings; they will have to highlight one detail in particular
that impress them over the rest of the experience.
Oral Cultural Presentation: Each student will present about the cultural and linguistic
experience during the field lab in Spanish during 10 minutes at the end of the semester
(precise time will be determined by the professor when due date approaches).

COURSE POLICIES
The Honor Code
Intermediate Spanish II students are expected to comply with the UVA Honor Code. All work is to
be pledged and completed by the student without assistance from classmates, advanced Spanish
students, native speakers, or online translators, unless otherwise indicated by the professor. While
an online dictionary is an acceptable resource, use of any sort of online translator such as Google
Translate is a violation of the Honor Code. Any violations of the Code in or outside class will be
brought to the attention of the Honor Council for appropriate action.
Semester at Sea students enroll in an academic program administered by the University of
Virginia, and thus bind themselves to the University’s honor code. The code prohibits all acts of
lying, cheating, and stealing. Please consult the Voyager’s Handbook for further explanation of
what constitutes an honor offense.
Each written assignment for this course must be pledged by the student as follows: “On my honor
as a student, I pledge that I have neither given nor received aid on this assignment.” The pledge
must be signed, or, in the case of an electronic file, signed “[signed].”
Attendance and Tardiness
8
Attendance is obligatory for this class. In order for students to progress in their understanding and
speaking of Spanish, they must be exposed to hearing and speaking it on a regular basis. You are
allowed two (2) unexcused absences. Beyond that, for each additional absence, one percentage
point will be deducted from your final grade. An excess of four (4) absences, excused or
unexcused, will result in a withdrawal from or failure in the course. Students are expected to arrive
to class on time. Being late to class counts as half an absence.
Assignment Deadlines and Make-up Work
Assignments are due by the beginning of class as indicated on the syllabus. No late work and no
make-up work will be accepted. Students who will not be in class should complete their
assignments ahead of time. There are no make-ups for exams, quizzes, compositions, or
presentations.
Your responsibility
For each credit hour, it is expected that you spend an average of 2 hours on homework and class
preparation. You are expected to come to class having prepared the material on the syllabus for
that day and ready to participate actively in class. Class will be conducted only in Spanish. It is
your responsibility to let your professor know if you do not understand or to consult her during
office hours with any questions or concerns.
Electronics
No laptops, no cell phones or other electronic devices will be used in class unless advised by the
professor. Failure to comply may result in dismissal from the class period.
