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.
