Abstract

Developed by experienced language program coordinators at The Ohio State University and The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, Día a día offers a fresh approach to fourth-semester Spanish by engaging learners in purpose-driven activities about both their personal lives and professional ambitions. Learners envision how Spanish can become part of their own día a día today and tomorrow!

We know that the fourth-semester Spanish course can be especially challenging for students, instructors, and departments alike. It typically concludes a two-year period of basic language instruction; thus, it must meet learners at their current level of second language proficiency and prepare them for the next level of specialized courses, armed with more sophisticated vocabulary, increased grammatical accuracy, sentence- to paragraph-level discourse, and a deeper understanding of Spanish-speaking cultures. The course also needs to sustain or increase students’ motivation and interest in continuing their second language studies and departmental enrollment as majors or minors. With its rich array of resources that include engaging video, Día a día helps instructors break through these challenges and many others.
