MODULE 1. Introduction to Spanish grammar. For this course the students will need to have a basic knowledge of Spanish language (which includes basic vocabulary and grammar). The aim of this level is to be able to read and translate different kinds of Spanish texts and to complete the introduction to Spanish grammar. At the end of the course, students will be able to translate texts with the help of the dictionary.

Spanish Grammar: Is, very easy to learn, at least for speakers of other romance languages. The language is a simple, logical system and occasions to practice it are quite widespread, so you should not have hard time learning.

Spanish Grammar
Spanish Grammar

- Phonemes. Most of them are simple, except the “jota” and “rolled r.” These are easy to master for most people, but it takes some times to be able to speak rapidly and precisely.
- Syntax. Very simple, especially if you already speak another romance language. American readers must accept that verbs can change with tenses and persons, but once you get that the system is relatively regular.
- Vocabulary. Not especially simple if you do not already know another romance language. Nevertheless, vocabulary is pretty analytical if you look close enough and can be mastered quite fastly.
- Orthography. Very simple, totally logical: you write as you speak, you speak as you write, even for the accents.

MODULE 2. Reading and comprehension of Spanish Literature texts and articles.
