Intended for students who have had some Spanish instruction or exposure to Spanish but who are not ready for Intermediate Spanish. This course will enable students to achieve Spanish proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing at or above the novice-high level as defined by the ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) Proficiency Guidelines. In keeping with the National Standards for Foreign Language Education, culture (music, art, gastronomy, social mores, and others) is embedded in this language course.
