1 BOSTON COLLEGE SPAN1116 Intensive Intermediate Spanish II Summer 2015 / 3 credits Instructor: Nilza Gonzalez-Pedemonte Office: Carney 130 Office Hours: M/T/W/Th 5:00-6:00 p.m Schedule: M/T/W/Th 6:00 to 9:15 p.m. Room: Gasson 310 BOSTON COLLEGE MISSION STATEMENT Strengthened by more than a century and a half of dedication to academic excellence, Boston College commits itself to the highest standards of teaching and research in undergraduate, graduate and professional programs and to the pursuit of a just society through its own accomplishments, the work of its faculty and staff, and the achievements of its graduates. It seeks both to advance its place among the nation's finest universities and to bring to the company of its distinguished peers and to contemporary society the richness of the Catholic intellectual ideal of a mutually illuminating relationship between religious faith and free intellectual inquiry. Boston College draws inspiration for its academic societal mission from its distinctive religious tradition. As a Catholic and Jesuit university, it is rooted in a world view that encounters God in all creation and through all human activity, especially in the search for truth in every discipline, in the desire to learn, and in the call to live justly together. In this spirit, the University regards the contribution of different religious traditions and value systems as essential to the fullness of its intellectual life and to the continuous development of its distinctive intellectual heritage. CATALOG DESCRIPTION COURSE DESCRIPTION Welcome to part two of Intermediate Spanish. This is an intensive course which builds on previously acquired language skills and helps prepare students to interact with native speakers of Spanish. Emphasis is on vocabulary expansion, accuracy of expression, and interactive language use. By capitalizing on the advantages which the medium of video makes possible, this language program (Destinos: An Introduction to Spanish) will stimulate your interest and reduce many of the common frustrations of a language student at the intermediate level. By use of a special genre, the telenovela, you will be exposed to various Hispanic cultures and dialects. Prerequisite: Intermediate Spanish I or equivalent. COURSE OBJECTIVES This course focuses on enhancing your ability to communicate in Spanish by helping you to master several important language functions, or actions/ideas that you can express with the language. These functions will enable you to create, participate in conversations, ask and answer questions and manage everyday topics and social situations. The functions in the second session include recycling what we studied in the first session: Narration in the Past; Talking about the Future; Influencing others and Giving Commands. We will also review: Desires and Influence in the Past, Pending Actions, and Hypothesizing. We will review the major grammar points needed to express these functions. However, from the very beginning of the course, we will be using all of the functions that we will be reviewing this term; you will only be held accountable for accuracy once we have covered it in class.

Oral Comprehension / Speaking / Culture: The goal of this course is two-fold: to teach in Spanish and to engage all students in daily opportunities for communicating in Spanish, such as in groups and individually. Oral communication skills and class participation / preparation are significant components of the course and will be evaluated regularly. 2. Reading / Writing / Culture: We will read short literary pieces or articles, mostly as part of the Destinos program, with the goal of expanding your awareness of Hispanic culture & history. You will also write a number of paragraph-length essays. Writing emphasis will be on learning ways to create more complex and interesting sentences. Please double space any prose. Seeking outside help on written work is not allowed; this includes using tutors for help on these assignments. Using a dictionary is fine, but use of an online translator will be considered a violation of the university policy on Academic Integrity. See BC Academic Honesty policy on the BC Catalog or on the Course Web Page link to 3. Textbook / Workbook (): There will be daily assignments in the textbook and workbook. Assignments from the workbook also accompany each lesson and will be collected in class.

Check answers against answer key in the back of the workbook, correct in another colored ink by crossing out incorrect answer and writing in correct one.
