Spanish I - Course Description

Friday, July 19, 2013

In Spanish I, students begin using terms and concepts in a variety of contexts: daily routines, identifying and describing people and things, terms related to family and professions, telling time, days of the week, months of the year, seasons, means of transportation, and weather expressions. They study the verbs ser and estar, regular verbs in the present tense, and some irregular verbs like ir and venir. Students practice the grammar structures in conversation, reading and listening comprehension, and writing. The students also prepare for the final exam by reviewing grammar, vocabulary, and cultural aspects covered throughout the course.
