- In this 5 unit course you will learn the foundations of Spanish grammar with constructions and vocabulary to provide a base for further Spanish language studies. The focus of this course is Spanish grammar and communication skills. We work in the Present tense, the Future tense, and we will be introduced to the Preterite past tense toward the end of the course. Additionally, this course is designed to provide you with information on Hispanic culture, emphasizing the diversity among Spanish-speaking countries.
This course is five (5) credit units + 1 hour lab because you are working on (and graded on) reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.
