    Students in Level 1 Spanish are expected to reach a proficiency level of Novice-Mid to Novice-High by the end of the course.  Here are some characteristics of the Novice-Mid to Novice-High learner:

    Novice-Mid Students--

    • express meaning in highly predictable contexts using memorized and recalled words/phrases.
    • are best able to understand aural cognates (words that sound the same in two languages), borrowed words, high frequency, and highly contextualized words with repetition.
