SPAN 001

Course Description

Spanish 001 is the first level of four (4) sequentially taught language courses designed to satisfy the foreign language requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences. It is a three-credit undergraduate course that is offered in the Fall and Spring semesters and often during the summer.

Spanish 001 is a communicative and proficiency-based course that adheres to the ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) foreign language standards.  This course conforms to the educational philosophy of the Basic Spanish Program “Three Modes of Communication Paradigm” which incorporates the ACTFL three Modes of Communication. Accordingly, students are assessed in examinations based on these three modes:

Interpretive: A reader or listener is engaged in understanding the meaning of oral, written, or other cultural texts.

Interpersonal: Individuals exchange information and negotiate meaning orally.

Presentational: Individuals engage in one-way oral or written communication that presents information.
