This ambitious course is designed to reinforce, strengthen, and advance a student’s ability to express and understand Spanish in written and spoken forms. The two live sessions per week provide a lively, interactive environment for teaching and reviewing important concepts, answering questions, and speaking and listening to each other. With a thorough, challenging textbook and regular in-class instruction, we study Spanish grammar at a high level and spend time learning some of the common expressions that are not typically found in books. Using weekly vocabulary lists and activities, this course challenges students to gain an extensive, practical vocabulary for use in a wide range of everyday situations. To build comprehension skills, students will complete at-home listening assignments. The rest of the time is spent in interactive participation designed to increase familiarity and effectiveness in realistic language situations. The instructor will facilitate Spanish conversations and role-plays on a variety of issues, including passages of Scripture and Christian living, to sharpen both minds and Spanish skills for service in God’s Kingdom.
