SPAN 120 is an intermediate-level Spanish course. It is recommended for students who have had the equivalent of three-to-four years of high school Spanish. This course seeks to expand Spanish language skills with exercises in conversation, oral comprehension and composition, based on cultural readings.
This course teaches students to understand key conversation points at work, school, and beyond; how to deal with situations that may arise while traveling in a Spanish-speaking country; and how to compose simple, connected texts regarding personal matters and typical, familiar topics. Students will learn how to describe experiences, events, dreams, hopes and ambitions and explain the rationale behind their opinions and future plans. The class will be conducted entirely in Spanish. Three hours a week with the lecturer, plus one hour with the language assistant. The Intermediate Spanish curriculum is divided into two semesters; students who take SPAN 120 in the fall are expected to continue their studies during the spring semester with SPAN 125.
