Gavilan Spanish celebrates 400 years of Don Quijote

Class Index   Albert Marqués   David Pérez   Spanish Links
SPAN2A Intermediate Spanish  
This course teaches culture and facilitates language acquisition through listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students will continue to interact with authentic language in context. Content is expanded beyond “survival” needs of the immediate environment in order to express personal meaning and to apply different strategies and techniques to go beyond casual conversation and express opinions, make suggestions on familiar topics, as well as some abstract issues and plans. Students demonstrate an increased awareness of cultural norms, values, and culturally relevant appropriate customs and events. Accuracy becomes quite high for high frequency structures and vocabulary but more complex discourse is still developing and requires a somewhat sympathetic listener or reader. Students will demonstrate the ability to think critically by analyzing linguistic structures and reflecting on and making crosscultural comparisons. This course is taught primarily in Spanish. This course has the option of a letter grade or pass/no pass.
ADVISORY: Spanish 1B or equivalent.
