FALL 2018

 

Dear Students: please CALL me for timely communication :)

->     ->     ->     ->     ->     ->          

 

 

 BIENVENIDOS!!
 Welcome to the fun and challenge of learning the Spanish language.  Communication is the most important ability we have.  Speaking to others in another language and understanding what they have to share is a delightful and exhilarating experience.
 
 
 
My FALL 2018 courses: 
 
 Spanish 101    
         
 Spanish 102 
 
 
 
TEXTBOOK:  The easiest method to obtain our text book is through Amazon (Exploraciones with access card) NEW book.  You must have the iLrn access card as all your homework is via this platform. (currently @$132.92) This text is for Spanish 101, 102 and 103 and is heavily used in class.

 

MORE IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT YOUR TEXTBOOK 

We use the textbook Exploraciones 2nd edition for the full Spanish first Year (SPN 101, 102 and 103). You can buy the book by itself (access code to i-Lrn is required) . However, it is more cost effective to purchase Cengage Unlimited (ebook), which costs less than the book (@$119.95) and gives you access to all Cengage products (this can save you significant money if your other classes also use Cengage books).

If you purchase Cengage Unlimited, also RENT A HARD COPY OF THE BOOK. You can rent it through Cengage Unlimited (via Chegg) for $7.99 per term, or from many other renters for $15.00 (including amazon.com). However if you are taking more than one term of Spanish it is less expensive to buy the book new through Amazon.

The following links give you detailed information about how to sign in and set up your account for the class:

2.  At the top left of the screen, click on the "View by Chapter" tab.

3.  Unclick the "View assigned activities only" box.

4.  Start scrolling down, down, down until you see purple icons and assignments that begin with S

5.  Locate the pronunciation header. The exercise will begin with S1:P1 and so on.

6.  Go through the exercises on your own.  Do NOT submit anything.  Practice a few times until you feel comfortable and you understand the concept.

7.  Do not forget to switch back to "View by Date" when you're done.
