Bienvenidos Otoño 2011

Welcome Fall 2011 Class!
I am so psyched to be teaching this class again.  Day one is a chance for us to get to know each other, your needs in this class, and learn some Spanish right quick-super rapido.  Each of you come with unique experiences in relation to the language and the cultures of Spanish speaking communities.  We will have short, and I mean short mini lectures so you can work in pairs to practice dialogues.  I will speak in Spanish as much as possible to give you as much understandable input as I can.  Remember (?) how you or your children learned their first language?  A baby-child listened for a year before starting to speak in understandable words and phrases.  We will accelerate this process with you, but not too fast.  I will expect you to verbally practice immediately, in class and at home.  There is an opportunity for online homework, in class practice and independent study.  Every Monday evening will be a great one.  Our final exam will be a dinner out with first language Spanish speakers.  Bienvenidos todos.
