Course Description: BJU Press Nuevos Amigos is a brand new edition that is designed to enable students to focus on developing proficiency, cultural awareness, and a Biblical world view in Spanish. The course uses a standards based approach following guidelines from ACTFL ( The American Council on the teaching of Foreign Languages.) Emphasis is on obtaining a functional use of the language rather than primarily focusing on grammar memorization. Grammar memorization is good, but it doesn’t stop there. We have to get the grammar out of the students mouths so the student can say something meaningful about themselves, others and God. Students will increase understanding and appreciation for life in the Spanish-speaking world. Students will also grow in their use of Spanish at home and abroad to show God’s love to Hispanic neighbors. My goal is to get the students talking and responding in Spanish as much as possible while they are in class. I am excited about this edition because students will be able to access activities online that will enable them to practice listening and speaking skills at home.
Course Expectations: Students are expected to complete weekly assigned material, exercises, and activities. Students will keep a notebook for recording vocabulary and key grammar rules, and keep handouts given in class.
