FALL: Spanish I(B)
Monday & Wednesday | 12:00pm – 1:15pm CST | Sep. 9th – Nov. 30th
*Includes Saturday ‘Cafes!’
This course is for those students who have taken Spanish I (A), or for those who have had some exposure to their target language, typically 20-30 hours, or up to one semester. The course will begin with a review of Spanish I (A), and furthers students’ familiarity with the present tense indicative verb conjugations. Students will practice speaking through such everyday themes as emotions, food, cooking, weather, and daily routines. Grammar points such as the present progressive, the ser vs estar distinction, the present progressive, idiomatic expressions using tener, adverbs, reflexive verbs, and the present perfect using haber will also be covered. But fear not (!) we make grammars do-able and fun, the Freestyle way! Practice grammar topics and vocabulary through authentic materials and culturally rich contexts such as the film trailer for this course Como agua para chocolate (Alfonso Arau, 1992).
