Elementary College Spanish II (SPAN 1320)

(UCA Concurrent Enrollment-Junior/Senior level Spanish) SPAN 1320

Elementary College Spanish II is a continuation of beginning Spanish designed for students who have previously taken SPAN 1310 (Elementary College Spanish I). This course continues to develop the student’s ability to speak, read, write and comprehend basic Spanish. Special emphasis is placed upon the grammatical structures necessary for perfecting these communication skills. The student will also gain cultural awareness of Hispanic ways of life.

The study of this class will prepare students to enter college at the intermediate level of Spanish with a firm foundation of the language. Topics covered in Elementary College Spanish II include: saber and conocer, indirect object pronouns, preterite tense-regulars and irregulars, demonstrative adjectives and pronouns, reflexive verbs, negative and indefinite words, verbs like gustar, double object pronouns, comparatives and superlatives, relative pronouns, prepositions, the imperfect tense, preterite and imperfect, adverbs, and constructions with se.

Students will also learn about the history, cultures and customs of Spanish-speaking countries, and more advanced vocabulary. Students who prefer to continue to learn new, advanced material in Spanish, and who are not concerned with receiving college credit, should take Spanish IV instead.
