What you'll learn in this basic spanish class:

DC Internationals is proud to offer Spanish 1 Normal, a 10-11 week non-credit course designed to teach Spanish through immersion, practical application, and real life scenarios. The MESALI teaching method integrates systematic learning, Mnemonic devices, and the Socratic method. Active student participation and a willingness to make mistakes is encouraged and an essential part of learning at MESALI.

Academic Goals:
The course will teach the Spanish alphabet, grammar, dialogue and reading, with vocabulary, grammatical explanations, and exercises. Each class will begin by going over the exercises from the previous lesson, thereby reviewing that lesson before proceeding with the next one. 

In addition to the material covered in the lessons, which will be passed out at each class meeting, there will be thorough classroom conversation. The students will be expected to purchase the course materials. By week five, each student will make a presentation to the class. There will be weekly quizzes, to reflect vocabulary acquisition and grammar. 

While augmenting our lexicon all the while, we will be able to read, write and speak basic sentences in present, and past tenses. Handouts will facilitate all of the above mentioned. We will have a Final on the last day of class.

The course creates realistic scenarios, preparing students for actual work and common every day in-country encounters. It prepares students to work with local government authorities, small businesses, and to navigate the market place. The course will synthesize reading, writing, and speaking skills because language is a combination of each of these skills. By the end of the semester, you can expect to have basic reading, writing, and speaking skills. The course will prioritize speaking, in order to prepare students for their immediate arrival in country.
