I.  Spanish I (1.00 credit) 1 year

            The foreign language program recognizes three basic goals:  communications, cultural awareness and personal development.  In Spanish I, communications development is achieved through the use of the four language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing.  The student will learn common beginning vocabulary, grammar rules and how to conjugate verbs in the present tense.  Sentence structure will be discussed and by the end of the year, the student should be able to read and write a simple paragraph in Spanish and carry on a simple conversation in Spanish.  Cultural awareness is developed through the use of films and projects.  Personal development is made through working in groups, reciting without embarrassment, listening patiently to one another, and through the positive experience of being successful with a foreign language.

PREREQUISITE: A or B in English recommended, C average in English required.
