Class Overview

Spanish - Level 1 | Seattle Central College - Continuing EducationEstablish a strong foundation in the Spanish language during this beginning course.

Conducted mainly in Spanish in order to maximize your contact with the language, we'll focus on the practice of language in the four basic areas: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

The goal is to provide you with the ability to acquire a natural way of communicating with native speakers, as well as to introduce you to the many facets of Spanish-speaking cultures.

Through lecture, video, small group and class discussions, visual aids, and situational approaches, we'll practice grammatical material that cover these four main areas.

Additional cultural readings and activities will be provided in the class, and we'll engage in debates, discussions, role-playing, and more so that you can track your progress.
