This course is designed for people who have already taken at least two or three courses of Spanish at CTAS, or who have had at least two semesters of Spanish. Although the instructor will teach some new grammatical concepts, the emphasis will be placed on the art of conversation. We will do role plays, create dialogues in which students must solve problems they encounter in everyday life situations whether here in the United States or in a Spanish speaking country. We also will have discussions on cultural and language-related aspects of Spain, Colombia, and Mexico. Students will also learn to integrate into their exchanges and our discussions useful everyday and idiomatic expressions. Listening will continue to be emphasized in this course. Please purchase the following textbook: Practice Makes Perfect: Spanish Conversation, Premium Second Edition, Comprehensive Study Program by Dr. Jean Yates and bring it to the first class. Other materials for this course will be supplied by the instructor.
