Fixed-Pace Course





This course introduces students to the language and cultures of the Spanish-speaking world, building foundational vocabulary and basic knowledge of sentence structure. Students develop skills in presentational speaking, conversational speaking, and informal writing. Cultural information presented throughout the course provides a platform for making intercultural connections. Topics covered include geography of the Spanish-speaking world, personal identification, school, meal taking, leisure, family, house & home, shopping, and physical environment.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
