Tips: - Come to class every day and be as well prepared as possible. - Keep up with the exercises in the Textbook/Workbook/Video and Lab Manual. Do all the assigned section on a daily basis. Study the corresponding section in your textbook first, then move on to the exercises in your workbook and do them without referring to the answer key and, finally, correct your answers against the key. - Don’t hesitate to ask questions, before, during or after class and visit me during office hours. - Make friends with your classmates and exchange phone numbers. Learning Spanish will be more fun and you will have somebody to help you catch up if you have to miss a class. - Explore radio, television, music, movies, and magazines in Spanish, try to select topics that interest you, and enjoy learning a new language. ¡Bienvenidos a clase y muy buena
