A beginning course with emphasis on elements of grammatical structures and practice in reading, writing and oral exposition. Bienvenidos a la clase. Spanish 114 is the second level of a course designed for bilingual or Spanish heritage students to allow these students to obtain and develop the necessary skills to communicate in standard or academic Spanish. Spanish 114 is designed for students who have been reared in a Spanish-speaking environment and speak or understand some Spanish as a result of having heard it in the home and community by parents or grandparents, family, friends, and neighbors.

The class objective is to build upon the language base you already possess and to teach literacy in Spanish. The Spanish you bring into the classroom is not viewed as a “bad” form of Spanish, which must be eliminated or incorrect, but rather is considered an extremely valid means of oral communication. All four skills; listening, speaking, reading, and writing will be enhanced throughout the course by including the cultural and historical background shared by students. With this knowledge, you will have a better understanding of Spanish and will be able to reaffirm your pride in your heritage and culture.

More specifically, Spanish 114 emphasizes the acquisition of reading and writing. Assignments will focus on building vocabulary and basic orthographic skills, and strengthening knowledge of grammatical structures. By the end of the semester you should be able to read stories and magazine articles, write compositions, and converse in terms of a conversation. In this course you will participate in various activities and related exercises designed to enrich the four basic skills.
