Workbook & Laboratory manual
• This course is designed to help continue developing your speaking, listening, writing
and reading skills in Spanish with emphasis in communicative competence.
• To read and understand written passages and demonstrate an ability to write well
constructed compositions on assigned topics at a higher level.
• To enhance cultural understanding and appreciation of the Spanish-speaking world
such as history, geography, arts, traditions, etc.
• Spanish is used in the classroom. Only in case of complex explanations, English will be
• The text, music, video clip, and internet activities will be used for writing, oral, reading
and listening activities.
• Pair and group activities of dialogues and comprehensive exercises to reinforce
structures learned in class will be regularly practiced. The point of these activities is to
develop natural conversation, not just to get through the activity. Don’t rush through
them; allow your partner to communicate with you and try to focus on the ideas and
• Students will be called upon to speak in Spanish in the course of the class. Dictation,
reading, and listening exercises will be used to develop the student’s competence in the
• Weekly homework, writing assignments and a test after each chapter will be given.
• Keep in mind that when you speak Spanish you will be making mistakes. The best way
to eliminate these errors is not to worry and think hard about the grammar when you
speak, but to continue to get more language input through listening, conversation, and
reading. In time, you will become more acurate.
Mi Consejo ( My advise):
™ The most important thing in a language class is ACTITUD; to relax and have
fun. Don’t worry if you don’t understand every word I say; just concentrate in
getting the main idea. Nor should you worry about making mistakes. You will
make fewer mistakes as your listening skills improve, so keep making every
effort to understand. Don’t expect to be able to express yourself as well as in
your native language. Don’t worry about your classmates making mistakes
either. Some students will acquire Spanish more rapidly than others, but
everyone will be successful in the long run. For now, minor grammatical or
pronunciation errors do not harm. Always listen to my feedback when I make
comments or rephrase what a student has said in a more complete and correct
manner. This is not done to embarrass anyone, but to give the entire class the
chance to hear more Spanish spoken correctly. Finally, speak Spanish; avoid
English. If you don’t know how to express an idea or word in Spanish ask me
¿Cómo se dice _____ en español? ( How do you say_____ in Spanish?)
• Regular attendance and active participation are critical to the course grade. Students
are expected to be on time and attend all classes. More than three unexcused absences
will be considered excessive. After the third absence your grade will be lowered a letter
• Two lateness or leaving the class during the session without previous notice will count
as one absence.
• Students who disrupt the class with excessive talking, sleep or, work on other subjects
other than Spanish, will be asked to leave the class and will be considered an unexcused
• If you have to miss a class, it is your responsibility to find out what material was
covered during your absence and to hand in your homework and lab assignments on
• Respect and civility are required in the class. Remember to turn off your cell
phones/beepers before the class begins. Food is not allowed in the classroom.
• Because you will be graded on your daily oral participation, you are expected to
attend every class session on time. Class participation grade is based on your daily
class preparation and your active participation in class activities.
• Homework and on-line lab assignments are an important part of your grade. For this
course, an on line workbook and lab manual (QUIA) will be used.
• In order to use your QUIA WORKBOOK AND LAB MANUAL, you need to create a
QUIA account. But first of all, you are required to purchase a QUIA KEY (a password).
You can do that either on-line (web site: or in the bookstore.
• QUIA assignments will be submitted online the date of your quizzes. All QUIA
assignment missed is an automatic FAIL in this class. 5 points will be deducted from
the final grade for each assigment that is either incomplete or late.
In SP12 we cover from chap. 7 to chap. 12 of the textbook; therefore, you
have 6 quizzes.
