* Description
Spanish 1 for Adults is aimed at building or reviewing basic Spanish vocabulary and grammar. We will start from the most basic grammar and expressions, learn introductions, asking about family, descriptions, asking for directions, ordering food, giving opinions, and other basic communication skills. The class focuses helping students use Spanish in real situations.
* Meetings
This course meets 2 times per week for discussion and review of assigned homework.
* Homework
We will work on some grammar, vocabulary, and listening exercises on the Supersite that is connected to the textbook, the number of exercises completed will depend on each adult's weekly schedule.
* Prerequisites
There are no previous course requirements. Having studied Spanish or another foreign language will help with learning the grammar and possibly the vocabulary, but we also accept adults who have never studied any foreign language.
* Recommended background
Part of learning a modern language as an adult is having patience and a good sense of humor. After a certain age, learning to speak a language perfectly is nearly impossible, but learning to speak a modern language in a way that allows us to enjoy traveling, interacting, reading, and even seeing our own language in a new light is always possible and is a great adventure.
