Prior to Longwood University, I had never taken a Spanish course that I felt gave me a very strong foundation in the language. However, during this course I was able to gain a general understanding of the basics of Spanish. We discussed the different conjugations that are used for Spanish verbs depending on the different contexts. Also, I learned the Spanish words for nouns and verbs associated with various topics. For example, I learned words associated with family, daily routine, employment, and several other topics. After this course, I felt as confident in Spanish as I ever had.
My artifact from this course is a PowerPoint that I created which outlines the weekly routine for my pet dog in Spanish. I enjoyed both determining the routine and translating the different parts into Spanish. Also, I was tasked with introducing my pet in Spanish with and opening slide that described her and her role in my family. By completing this project I demonstrated that I had learned the concepts we discussed in class. After completing the written portion of the PowerPoint, I had to add sound clips to each slide that recited the words to show that I was able to properly pronounce the words with a sufficient Spanish accent.
