As a primary textbook, we use ¡Apúntate! Español Introductorio, by Ana María Pérez-Gironés & Thalia Dorwick. First Edition. (New York: McGraw Hill, 2010), an excellent text with interactive CD-ROM, audio CD and other tools that assist professors and students alike. In addition to the scheduled classes, a state of the art Language Laboratory, weekly professors’ office hours, cultural activities, and free tutorial services create a wide range of possibilities beyond the classroom for those students who want to achieve excellence in their learning process.
At the end of this course, students should be able to create and understand Spanish sentences in simple and perfect tenses, in both oral and written forms. In addition to that, they should be able to use different kinds of adverbs in order to describe actions.
