SPANISH II F IRST SEMESTER Introduction to the Module This module is a second stage introductory language module for students who need an introduction to Spanish. It focuses on all four language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) in an integrated approach. It introduces key structures and vocabulary relevant to topics studied, and provides initial insights into Hispanic society and culture. It combines a communicative approach to language with the development of basic reading and writing skills. The module will develop students’ language competence, which will enhance employability.

3. A TTENDANCE R EQUIREMENTS AND CLASS PARTICIPATION (10%) Attending all the classes is very important and one of the best ways to help students succeed in this subject. Students are expected to arrive on time and take an active part during the classes. If they are unable to attend a class for a valid reason (e.g.: illness), they should contact the teacher. Continued absence can result in the termination of their registration as they will be considered to have withdrawn from their studies.
4. A SSIGNMENTS (10%) AND ASSESSMENTS (70%) All coursework assignments and other forms of assessment must be submitted by the published deadline. It is student’s responsibility to know when work is due to be submitted – ignorance of the deadline date will not be accepted as a reason for late or non-submission. Examination / Assessment scripts are retained by Chiang Mai University and are not returned to students. However, students are entitled to feedback on their performance in an examination and may request a meeting with the teacher to see their examination script and to discuss their performance.

A SSIGNMENTS (10%) Essay (3%) (Deadline: Tuesday 16th July) Set of homework (4%) (Tuesday 17th September) Spanish Film Club (3%) (During the semester, on Wednesday): Cultural activities are the ideal complement to the classroom experience. They are designed to give closer insight into socio-cultural aspects of our language, in a more leisurely way. During the semester, we program the Spanish Film Club, an out-of-class activity, in which students have the opportunity to watch and discuss contemporary Spanish films in order to achieve a global vision of the Spanish society and culture. Some extra activities, related to the film,could be required to get the extra 3% of the final mark.

7. A SSESSMENT O FFENCES Students are reminded that any work that they submit must be their own. When they are preparing their work for submission, it is important that they understand the various academic conventions that they are expected to follow in order to make sure that they do not leave theirselves open to accusations of plagiarism (e.g.: the correct use of referencing, citations, footnotes etc.) and that their work maintains its academic integrity. Plagiarism is theft and constitutes the presentation of another’s work as your own in order to gain an unfair advantage.
