S105 is an introductory course which covers in one semester the essential grammar and vocabulary of first-year Spanish; it is designed for students with two or more years of high school Spanish or with previous experience learning a foreign language. The course follows a communicative approach which springs from the idea that languages are best learned when real-world information becomes the focus of student activities. From the first day of class, students will interact in Spanish with the instructor and with classmates. Therefore, by the end of this course, students should be able to successfully handle in Spanish an impressive number of basic communicative tasks. This course is supported by Proyecto Ancla, an exciting web-based project created by the Department of Spanish & Portuguese to integrate technology into the classroom. Proyecto Ancla features online interactive exercises to complement the text and presents students with increased opportunities to practice their Spanish language skills.

Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to: • speak Spanish well enough to describe, narrate, and ask and answer questions in present, past, and future tense about everyday topics including leisure activities, trips and traveling, personality traits, moods and feelings, careers, hypothetical situations, etc. • comprehend Spanish with sufficient ability to grasp the main idea and some supporting details in short conversations that relate to daily life and represent authentic situations • read and understand the main idea and some details of both edited materials and non-edited narratives and articles, if the latter are highly contextualized • write sentences and paragraphs on familiar topics related to daily routine and other themes of the text 1
