 ACC 191 - Spanish I

Content

The mission statement of UCR (as an international LAS college) is to educate responsible global citizens and the ACC 191 Spanish course aims to contribute to this mission. As part of this curriculum, cultural knowledge and intercultural communication are integrated in the language learning process.

This course adopts an academic approach and combines general language with very basic Spanish for specific purposes.  It encompasses a variety of assignments designed to make the students think critically by analysing language structures in communicative contexts and specific cultural elements to prevent the most common mistakes that students learning Spanish tend to make.

The linguistic contents of this course are: grammar basic structures and present indicative. All skills are practiced at “absolute beginners” level: listening (audio-visual material), writing (short basic texts), reading (adapted texts from different cultural spheres) and speaking (guided conversation exercises). Basic research assignments are included in this course. Accordingly, this rich variety of exercises aims to fulfil the needs of a LAS student.

The course will be taught in neutral Spanish to facilitate communication with any Spanish speaking person.
