The course also focuses on language challenges particular to Heritage and Native speakers such as orthography, the inappropriate mix of English and Spanish, and contrasts between standard Spanish and regional variations.

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)
