SPA 203 - Intermediate Spanish I

3 Credits

Continued study in Spanish for those with a firm foundation in elementary Spanish communication, written and oral. Grammar and vocabulary are continued at a higher level. Cultural topics are included in the study of grammar and structure. A companion course, SPA 213, is strongly recommended for improving comprehension and oral fluency, especially for students transferring to four-year institutions. Memory and length of time since last studied are factors in successful placement.

Prerequisite(s): SPA 102, or successful completion of high school Spanish 4, the equivalent, or permission of the instructor.
