This course uses the Living Language method to teach whole language Spanish. Students begin speaking Spanish immediately using essential words and phrases, and then progress to full sentences and, finally, to actual conversations.
The Living Language method follows a four point approach to learning a foreign language: building a foundation of essential words and phrases, advancing to full sentences and conversations, practicing with recall exercises aimed at both short and long term memory, and developing practical language skills to equip the student in any situation.

The daily assignments are to be graded by the instructor (answers are found in the textbook); tests will be graded by Christian Liberty (CLASS). An audio CD player is required.
