|SPAN C171 Content Review|
Since much of a language class is based on learning grammatical structures in order to acquire good foreign language skills, it is recommended that students complete at least SPAN C102 before entering SPAN C171. Students who have successfully completed SPAN C102 are very likely to have sufficient proficiency and linguistic aptitude to proceed to a more advanced level, like SPAN C171.
Spanish 102 provides students the ability to:
Recognize the main verb tenses in Spanish; identify the main parts of speech in Spanish including how they function in relation to English (similarities and differences); have an understanding of many of the areas where Spanish is different from English in its structure such as, gendered nouns and gender and number agreement with articles, nouns and adjectives, two verbs which mean to be (ser and estar), and idiomatic expressions in common use (the verb tener used for age, hunger, etc.); have practice in the five main areas of language learning: speaking, listening comprehension, reading, writing, culture.
