¡Vengan a charlar y explorar con nosotros! This course is designed for students who have completed "Beginning Spanish: Part II" or who can meet and mingle with others, talk about their interests and activities past and present, and ask others about theirs, in Spanish. In this course, students will learn to interact on a more sophisticated level, expressing opinions, describing professional plans, talking about health-related issues, and beginning to narrate past events. Through video and reading materials, students will learn to effectively interpret Spanish and interact with native speakers to fulfill basic needs. Students should find this course useful whether they are traveling to a Spanish-speaking country this summer or staying right here in the United States—the world’s second-largest Spanish-speaking country.

Students must complete SPA 02: “Beginning Spanish: Part II” or have comparable experience prior to enrolling in this course.
