About this course:

This course begins a program of three courses (XL 1, XL 2, XL 3) covering first year college-level Spanish. Using a communicative integrated skills approach, the program simultaneously develops speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. Reading and writing activities provide opportunities to practice key grammatical structures, acquire vocabulary, and develop cultural insights. Instruction emphasizes the present tense of regular and major irregular verbs and the building of a basic conversational vocabulary. Conducted entirely in Spanish; no previous knowledge of Spanish required. Not open to students who have learned, from whatever source, enough Spanish to qualify for more advanced courses. Academic credit not available to native speakers. Transferable for UC credit.
