總體描述

西班牙語I 與麻省理工學院的其他課程區別很大。課本及練習冊的中心內容DESTINOS是一部長達52集的情景短劇,每集長30分鐘。(在西班牙語I 中有26集,其他26集在西班牙語II中)。DESTIONS其實是一部肥皂劇,通過這部充滿了驚喜和情感(愛,死亡,戰爭,性……)的短劇,學生可以學習到地道的西班牙語,並體驗其豐富多彩的文化。學生要利用課餘時間在LLARC(語言學習與資源中心)觀看這部短劇。

(DESTINOS線上:請登陸Annenberg/CPB網站,你可能找到DESTINOS: 西班牙語入門。註冊後你即可選擇想要觀看的劇集。

你同樣可以找到與課文及練習冊相配套的聽力材料。如果你提供空白磁帶,LLARC還可以為你翻錄。

課堂上你要進行各種各樣的活動和練習,包括用西班牙語討論劇情,練習發音和語法,與同學進行二人或小組的互動練習。課堂授課會盡可能使用西班牙語,但為了授課更清楚和有效,必要時也會使用英語。

本課程學習的是聽,說,讀,與這幾項最基本的語言技能。一般來說,在學習的初級階段,簡單易懂的口語是學習的重點。語法的學習是為了讓學生瞭解這種語言是如何使用的,而不是去背誦語法規則。為了學會說這門語言,你必須開口練習。有些學生害怕在其他人面前犯錯,針對這一點,我們會盡可能的營造一種寬鬆的學習氛圍。你無須在意老師,其他同學,一切都由你自己來決定。

本課程對西班牙語基礎沒有任何要求,但是,有些學生在高中或在其他地方已經學過西班牙語,只是沒能達到學習西班牙語II的水平。你不必為學習起點不同而感到困擾,因為這種優勢很快就會消失的。


必備書目:

課本〈DESTINOS〉 (VanPatten, Marks和Teschner編著。 ,McGraw Hill, 2002年出版)

教學參考書 〈DESTINOS〉《Workbook/Study Guide I.》(McGraw Hill, 2002年出版, 第一課至第二十六課)


推薦書目:好的西班牙語 – 英語字典


評分標準

本課程的成績依據是一系列的小測驗,而不僅僅是一兩次的大考。

1. 出勤: 35%

每次課的出勤及課堂表現都很重要。這是成績的主要依據。因為正是在課堂上與其他同學的互動對話的練習,你的西班牙語交流能力才能得到提高。學期成績由你平時在小組活動和課堂討論的準備和參與質量決定。注意:本課程注重的是日常口語的練習,不可能用其他的作業來代替,無故曠課的學生期評成績要被扣分。曠課4次期評扣5分,如果超過8次缺席本門課程為不及格。持有醫生證明或主任審批的假條和特殊情況除外。如有任何問題,請與任課老師聯繫。

2. 書面作業:30%。 包括課後練習,書面報告,網上作業及一頁紙的作文。

3. 測驗:4次課堂小測驗(35%)。 最後一次測驗安排在教學的最後一周,而非學校的期考時間。


General Description

Spanish I will be very different from your other classes at MIT: The central component of the "DESTINOS" text and workbook is a series of 52 half-hour video episodes (you see the first 26 in Spanish I, the rest in Spanish II). DESTINOS is, in effect, a soap opera that allows you to learn authentic Spanish and experience its cultural diversity while following a good story full of surprises and human emotions (love, death, war, sex, ...). You watch these episodes outside of class in the LLaRC (Language Learning and Resource Center).

(Destinos Online: Please check the Annenberg/CPB site, where the videos are streamed on demand: Destinos: An Introduction to Spanish.You just need to register and then select the episode you want to watch.)

You will also listen to an audio-only program integrated with the text and Workbook. The LLaRC will make copies of the audiotapes for you if you provide them with blank audiocassettes.

In the classroom, you will do a variety of activities and exercises, which include talking in Spanish about the video program, practicing pronunciation and grammar, and interacting in Spanish with classmates in pairs and small groups. The class is conducted in Spanish as much as possible, but English is used where necessary for clarity and efficiency.

In this course we deal with all basic language skills: aural comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing. Naturally, understanding spoken Spanish is especially stressed at the beginning. Grammar is studied not so that you can recite grammar rules, but rather so that you gain an understanding of how the language works. You must speak in order to learn to speak. Some students may feel inhibited about making mistakes in front of others. We will work together to make the class atmosphere as tension-free as possible. You must not be concerned about the instructor, or others, judging you at every moment.

This class assumes no previous knowledge of Spanish; however, some of your classmates may have studied Spanish in high school or elsewhere, but not enough to go into Spanish II. Do not let this initial inequality disturb you; the advantage of a head start diminishes quickly.

Evaluation/Grades

Grading is on the basis of frequent relatively small evaluations rather than on one or two major hurdles:

1. Class Attendance and Participation: 35%

Your presence and active participation are essential in each and every session. This will be the most significant part of your grade since it's in the class interactions with other students that your communicative abilities in Spanish will develop and improve. Your grade will be determined daily by the quality and quantity of your preparation and participation in group or pair activities and class discussions. WARNING: Since the emphasis of this class is on daily oral practice and this is impossible to make-up with extra work, unexcused absences will result in a lowering of the final class grade. For every four (4) unexcused absences there will be a 5% reduction of the final grade. Additionally, more than eight (8) unexcused absences will result in an "F" in class participation. Exceptions require a letter from a medical doctor, a dean's excuse, or other extraordinary circumstances. In case of questions or anticipated problems, please do not hesitate to contact your instructor.

2. Written Work: lesson worksheets, written reports and assignments from the Web and short one-page compositions. (30%)

3. Tests: 4 in- class quizzes (35%). The last quiz will be given in the last week of classes, not in the official Final Examination Period.
