Essential Spanish I


This course will gradually introduce students to basic grammar, vocabulary, and structures of Spanish.  Emphasis will be placed on high frequency and useful expressions for everyday communication. Upon completion of Spanish I Essential, students take Spanish II Essential, a terminal course, which will fulfill the second year language requirement.

Note: While this course meets Cardinal Gibbons’ and the state’s requirements for graduation, and the course is a good fit for students who find Spanish challenging, it does not meet the NCAA guidelines for eligibility in D1 or D2 schools.
