SPAN100Elementary Spanish I

Prerequisite: The student must be able to speak and read English. Not open to students with native ability in Spanish or those who have studied in a Spanish speaking country. (See SPAN 220). For additional oral practice, concurrent enrollment in SPAN 113 is recommended. The beginning Spanish course is based on a contrastive analysis between Spanish and English and is designed to develop in the English-speaking student rudimentary abilities in the four basic language skills: hearing, speaking, reading, and writing. The main emphasis is on the present tense of both regular and irregular verbs. The student will be familiarized with those features of Hispanic culture through authentic language and cultural products, which reflect the different frame of reference from which the native speaker of Spanish views the world. The class is conducted in Spanish. (C-ID SPAN 100) (CSU, UC)

SPAN200Intermediate Spanish I

Prerequisite: SPAN 110 with a grade of ?C? or better or equivalent. The student must be able to speak and read English. The student can be successful in SPAN 200 only after having achieved all of the minimal performance objectives specified for both SPAN 100 and SPAN 110. Either a recent course in SPAN 110 or a recent 3 year high school Spanish course with good retention should enable the student to succeed in SPAN 200. A continuation of SPAN 110 covering the uses of all Spanish tenses with special emphasis on the subjunctive and imperative modes. This course requires the use of increasingly complex language structures and vocabulary to develop the functional competence required to communicate beyond survival needs and to discuss and express opinions on abstract topics related to the arts, lifestyle, linguistics, and literature at the intermediate level. (CSU) (UC credit limited. See a counselor.)

SPAN221Spanish for Heritage Spkrs II

Prerequisite: SPAN 220 with a grade of ?C? or better or equivalent. Continuation of SPAN 220. It is designed for Heritage Speakers of Spanish to improve their writing, reading, and grammar skills. It focuses on the mastery of formal, written communication in Spanish at the intermediate-advanced level, while integrating authentic cultural and literary readings from Spanish speaking countries. The course focuses also on language challenges that Spanish speakers still encounter at intermediate-advanced level, such as orthography, the inappropriate mix of English and Spanish in specific contexts, and standard Spanish as contrasted with regional variations. This course is conducted entirely in Spanish. Emphasis on the conditional and the subjunctive forms. (CSU) (UC credit limited. See a counselor.)
