a!!ro!riate le#el of communicati#e com!etence in listening, s!eaking, reading, writing and an understanding of
His!anic culture. To reach this goal, it will "e necessary to memori$e #oca"ulary and #er" forms and to use e#ery
o!!ortunity to !ractice what the student has studied. %t is im!ortant to kee! u! with daily assignments, since
learning a new language is a cumulati#e !rocess. &rocessing new information de!ends on ha#ing learned the
!re#ious material. The instructor can gi#e hints on how to memori$e and will !ro#ide the student with !ractice in
listening/s!eaking in the classroom. %n addition the student should utili$e the on'line tutorials !ro#ided "y the
te(t"ook. Generally, reading and writing !ractice will occur outside the classroom.
Connect+,or)(oo) an% La( -anual: This online acti#ities manual contains work"ook )#oca"ulary, grammar,
!ronunciation and culture*, #ideo and la"oratory acti#ities that reinforce the material !resented in each lesson of
