Description: This course is the second semester of Elementary Spanish and students enrolled in this course should have taken IA/LS-0101 or the equivalent. This class is taught entirely in Spanish and focuses on speaking and using Spanish. 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 IA/LS-0101 and focusing on the differences between the preterit and imperfect tenses along with pronoun use as well as an introduction to present subjunctive and more sophisticated grammar. All four skill areas (speaking, listening, reading and writing) are practiced through activities that are based on real-life situations, the course textbook, Vistas and the students' experiences. Classroom attendance and participation count for sixty percent of the requirement for credit.
