Linguistics Spanish 1D/DX

The Linguistics Language Program offers 1D/DX in Spanish. This course develops all language skills while focusing on conversational competence, cultural awareness, and the grammatical functions essential for communication. 1D/DX is taught by two instructors entirely in the target language. Course activities include cultural readings, videos, resources of the Internet, and computer-based materials.

Literature Spanish 2A

The Department of Literature offers 2A courses in Spanish. These are intermediate-level language and culture courses conducted entirely in the target language. 2A includes a thorough review of grammar and continues to stress all five language skills -- speaking, listening, reading, writing and cultural literacy. This is conducted through classroom practice and discussion of films, and cultural readings drawn from a variety of sources.
