Thinking About Taking Spanish?

TAKE IT IN THE CLASSROOM

SPAN 1300, SPAN 1411, SPAN 1412, SPAN 2311 and SPAN 2312 are offered in the classroom. The students are able to enjoy the benefits of interacting with their professor and classmates. Spanish classes, like most language classes, are focused on communication. The professor lectures and emphasizes the activities to help the student learn the vocabulary and grammar. More importantly the students start using Spanish from the first day in class!

Here at Eastfield, we include the lab hours in class. However, the students still have to do their homework. Homework includes listening to activities, studying the vocabulary and doing the exercises in the workbook.

TAKE IT AS A TELECOURSE

Telecourses are ideal for students who cannot come to class often. SPAN 1411 TV (First year, First semester) and SPAN 1412 TV (First year, Second semester) are beginning level classes that use the video series Destinos and the Destinos textbook and workbooks. The students watch two episodes of Destinos each week. They complete worksheets and self-tests related to the episodes every week. There are four written tests that the students need take at the Testing Center at EFC and four oral assignments the students need to complete on voicemail.
