BEGINNING CONVERSATIONAL SPANISH
This is a beginning course in conversational Spanish. No previous experience
with the Spanish language is necessary, but it is helpful. The class will be a mix
of those who have studied Spanish before as well as those who have not.
Learn Spanish The Fast and Fun Way, third edition, by Gene Hammitt will be
used. The book comes in a set with a pull-out dictionary and two CDs. It is
available from most online booksellers and bookstores. This material will be
used in all four levels of our conversational Spanish curriculum. Please study
pages 1–7 for the first class. An additional recommended, but not required, text
is Just Enough Spanish Grammar by Gabriele Stobbe, for those who have
never studied Spanish before.
Presenter: Laura Denenholz is a retired professor of languages and linguistics. She
has degrees with honors in English, Spanish, and linguistics from Cornell University
and Harvard University, where she also taught. She was on the faculty of Essex County
College, Rutgers University, and Seton Hall University in New Jersey for over thirty
years. She presently teaches on a volunteer basis at the Lifelong Learning Academy at
USF, Sarasota, in the winter and lives in Highlands during the summer.
