Emphasizes vocabulary acquisition and speaking fluency. Through structured and carefully monitored individual, group, and class work, students achieve enduring language growth and meaningful acculturation that otherwise could only be achieved through an extended stay in an Hispanic country. This course is intended for those who are learning Spanish as a second-language. Native speakers of Spanish who have pursued formal education in a Spanish speaking country will not be admitted to the course. Heritage speakers of Spanish (native speakers who have pursued formal education in a non-Spanish speaking setting) as well as students from bi-lingual K-12 programs must meet with the coordinator to determine appropriate class level. Degree credit not granted for this course and SPAN 3002. Does not count toward the Spanish major or minor.
