Areas of Study

Course Overview

This is the first part of a two-semester course sequence. The course consists of an intensive study of the principles of Spanish grammar and usage of the language. The course also focuses on basic vocabulary building, reading, composition, and translation of elementary texts. A contrastive grammar approach will be incorporated, drawing upon elements of English and ASL. Students will also be exposed to aspects of the target culture(s), including information on its deaf communities abroad. Spanish Sign Language (LSE) will be integrated to support the vocabulary of each textbook chapter.
