Summary

This present technology-rich, content-oriented Spanish conversation program helps students reach the Intermediate-High level of oral proficiency as defined by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).  Appropriate for one semester courses taught at most colleges and universities, Charlemos:  Conversaciones prácticas consolidates Intermediate-level communication skills and introduces students to the features of the Advanced level through input processing and abundant contextualized speaking practice.  The program makes extensive use of multi-media and web technologies to deliver a dynamic and up-to-date learning experience that fosters language acquisition and oral skill development. 

 

Highly engaging, authentic video segments are offered as linguistic input to develop comprehension and grammatical skills.  Online tutorials and an award winning multi-media platform are deployed to facilitate contextualized practice and skill-application beyond the classroom.  The Versant Spanish Test is just one of the unique capstone experiences that enables learners to obtain an objective proficiency rating of their speaking skills at the end of the course.
