Spanish 1.5

Instructor: Diane Dionne

Wednesdays • 8 classes • 3/23-5/11 • 1:00-3:00 PM

Class size 2-8 students
6 seats remaining
Location: Jewett 190
This is an in-person class.  A Zoom class is also available on Mondays. 

This class is the third semester of a basic intro to Spanish. We will use the McGraw-Hill Practice Makes Perfect Basic Spanish book, beginning with Chapter 13. We will continue to focus on pronunciation and expanding students’ knowledge of basic Spanish vocab and grammar. Students will write original material in Spanish to present in class. We will do more reading and listening to recordings of native speakers. Because this class is very small, we plan to move at a faster pace this semester; as a result, the class will no longer be available as an alternative for students to move between the in-person and Zoom classes. We welcome newcomers – from last semester’s Spanish 1.25 Zoom class or other people with a basic knowledge of Spanish. We are working almost exclusively with present tense verbs.

Textbook: McGraw-Hill Practice Makes Perfect Basic Spanish
