Description: This course is the second semester of first-year Spanish and students enrolled in this course should have taken Elementary Spanish I (LS-101) or an equivalent. This is an intensive course and meets every day, including lunch and dinner with classmates and instructors in the Dining Commons. This class is taught entirely in Spanish and covers the same material in a regular semester course. Students entering this level should be able to use the present, future (ir + a + infinitive), and preterit with some fluency and accuracy. Attention is given to building accuracy with grammatical structures introduced in LS 101 and focusing on the differences between the preterit and imperfect tenses along with pronoun use. More sophisticated grammar is also introduced in this course. All four skill areas (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) are practiced through activities that are based on real-life situations, the course textbook, and the students' experiences. This class focuses on speaking and using Spanish. Classroom attendance and participation count for 50 percent of the requirement for credit.
