In this course, students will focus on developing speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills, with appropriate grammatical principles as well as additional insights into culture (focusing on Ecuador, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, and Costa Rica). Conversation practice will happen in the Conversation Café, where students will interact with other students and teaching assistants. This Spanish course includes many interactive activities and also includes an instructor-hosted wiki and live one-on-one speaking appointments. This is the fifth course in a six-part Spanish series, which aligns to ACTFL standards.
