SPAN 101 - First Semester Spanish (4)
The first of a two-semester sequence designed specifically for students with no previous Spanish. Activities and tests designed to accommodate the early stages of language acquisition; grammatical structures and lexical items presented accordingly. Emphasizes the development of communication skills: the ability to comprehend native speakers of Spanish, to speak Spanish with them, to understand Spanish-language texts, and to communicate ideas in Spanish. Students who successfully complete this course will proceed to SPAN 102. This course includes a mandatory one-hour weekly group conversation class with a tutor for nine weeks of the semester outside of the class meeting time. Note: All incoming students enrolling in a Spanish class at USF for the first time who have taken Spanish before and/or were raised speaking Spanish are required to take the placement text. (Please see the Department of Modern and Classical Languages website for more information). Offered every semester.
