Attendance and Class Participation

Regular attendance and participation in class activities are essential to be a successful language learner. In order for students to progress in understanding and speaking Spanish, they must hear and speak it on a daily basis. Therefore, students must prepare carefully for class by completing all assignments in advance and be ready to participate in class. Students will be graded on individual, pair, and group activities.  Students must not miss more than two classes.  For each unexcused absence beyond the two absences mentioned above, 0.5 point will be deducted from the final course grade.
