2.	…will learn everyday vocabulary, especially many English cognates.
3.	…will learn basic Spanish grammar as it is used in dialog.
My name is Brent Linn, and I have been speaking Spanish for over 30 years now, having studied in high school, then in a language institute in Costa Rica where I received an Avanzado Alto certificate. I lived in Venezuela in South America for 17 years, married a Venezuelan, and our four kids were all born there. Since returning to the USA in 2006, I have been teaching at a small, bilingual college in Memphis, TN, where I mostly teach courses in Spanish to Hispanic students. I have also tutored many students in Spanish 1, 2, and 3, and I have taught more than 20 courses to beginners in Spanish. I am looking forward to helping your students begin to speak Spanish.
There is no graded homework, however, students will get the most benefit out of the course if they review the previous lesson in the textbook and read the next lesson in preparation for the class.
We will be using a textbook. You are not required to purchase it, but I highly recommend it, because you can use it to prepare for upcoming classes and to review the lessons. It is an older textbook, but I love it because it starts with words that are similar between English and Spanish, allowing the student to begin with a healthy vocabulary. The information is listed below and, and it is available on Amazon as an ebook or in a print edition. It is not very expensive, especially as an e-book. Madrigal, Margarita. 2001. Madrigal's Magic Key to Spanish. New York: Broadway Books.
The only assessment is a 3 part test after lesson 11 in the book. We will take the test informally in the class and it will not be graded. Its purpose is to help the students (and parents) see how much they have learned and be encouraged to continue learning.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
