Students develop a more advanced vocabulary and practice the language through oral communication. They learn aspects of phonetics and acceptable standard Spanish pronunciation. Students are required to work in the language laboratory. (Learning Goals:CO)

Learning Goals:   The principal objectives of this course are to help the student attain competence in aural/oral communication skills by listening to a variety of regional forms of Spanish and by practicing correct pronunciation, formulating clear ideas using accepted speech structures and idiomatic expressions. This course will help students broaden their practical vocabulary and provide the opportunity to practice and improve aural/oral communication skills in the target language. By watching and listening to a variety of Hispanic films, student will be exposed to a broad spectrum of Spanish accents and customs. In addition, the films to be viewed offer a variety of Peninsular and Hispanic American variations in language usage, pronunciation, and cultural distinctions that can offer a wide contrast among themselves and our own. Students will be encouraged to focus in general on the most common phonological difficulties faced by English speakers and also to be attentive to their individual areas of need. Additional pronunciation practice will be available in the Language Resource Center (LRC), and such practice may be required by some and/or will be assigned as needed.
