¡Bienvenidos a SPAN 1010!
Welcome to Elementary Spanish! In this course you will begin a journey to learn the second most widely spoken language in the world, one that will broaden your personal and professional opportunities. You will develop the skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing in Spanish, which will enable you to communicate about everyday topics. You will also explore some of the products and practices of Spanish-speaking cultures, and reflect upon the perspectives behind them. Self-awareness and community building will be important elements in your journey, as you will be challenged to develop a wide repertoire of learning strategies, push your linguistic boundaries, value mistakes as part of the learning process, and work closely with your peers to support everyone’s growth.
