Course objectives:

SPAN*2010 is a continuation of SPAN*2000. The course is designed to increase your reading, comprehension, writing, and communication skills in Spanish. Classroom activities (in the lecture as well as the seminar) will include review, discussion, and application of the grammar constructs of the language.  It is critical that you be prepared to complete out of classroom activities in support of those scheduled for class meetings.

You are encouraged to seek assistance from the Instructor and the seminar facilitator as needed during listed office hours. We are here to help you achieve the learning outcomes of the course as well as your personal learning objectives.
