This is a 3 credit course for students with no background in Spanish to become competent in communicate through listening, speaking, reading, and writing. This open course will create and provide resources reusable under creative commons standards. Registration for the course is available immediately,
Although the course cannot provide college credit from an accredited university, capable students will learn the material of a first-year college class, and will receive a letter grade.
The course will be a combination of recorded video instruction, conversation practice with other students, and homework assignments given and evaluated through the integrated Instreamia learning platform. In these assignments, students will practice listening recognition, vocabulary understanding, context comprehension, and grammar usage.
