SPANISH I COURSE DESCRIPTION:
The Level I language course focuses on the development of communicative competence in the target language (Spanish) and understanding of the culture(s) of the people who speak the language. The major means of communication between students and instructors will be in the target language. An important component of language class is the use of the language beyond the classroom in the real world. The integration of technology is an important tool in accessing authentic information in the target language and in providing students the opportunity to interact with native speakers.
