What should I expect from a college-level spanish course?

November 3, 2008 by · 3 Comments 

Since I am through with my spanish in highschool 3 years, next year I am a senior, and none of the courses seemed difficult to me I am going to be taking a intermediate level spanish course in college. Entirely in spanish. I am very ambitous and motivated and would like to learn spanish and some day become fluent. I am taking it DURING THE SUMMER! Then my senoir year take year 5 of spanish.
I have been teaching Spanish at Syracuse University for many years. We love motivated students like you! First of all, you should be sure to take a placement test to make sure you’re in the right class. During the first couple of days in class, take a good look at the textbook and talk to the teacher. Make sure you’ll be challenged enough. If you think you’re in the wrong level class, deal with it quickly. Tell your teacher and find out what to do.

Once you know you’re in the right class, just be prepared to do the work required of the course every day. Don’t let your homework slip even a day because it’s easy to get lost and confused. College Spanish will feel like it’s really rushing! But if you’re doing the homework, you’ll be able to keep up, no problem. Make use of online resources to reinforce your learning. There are several sites that give you immediate feedback, which is one of the best things you can do when you’re outside class.

Don’t skip classes. That’s where you get the practice speaking. There is no substitute for being in conversations with other students and your teacher. Finally, the very best thing you can do is make friends with someone who will speak Spanish with you. Most universities have Spanish speaking students who need to practice their English. If you can, find such a person and spend half an hour conversing in Spanish and half an hour in English (don’t mix the two!). Try online chats, too. You’ll find a ton of resources in the link below. Good luck!

p.s
start right of with the free Spanish course we offer on the right hand side.
