My Spanish Lab:

My Spanish Lab is an important component to the lab and it accounts for 50 out of the 200 points you can earn during the semester. It would be helpful for you to register in My Spanish Lab before the first lab class. You can purchase My Spanish Lab on the web site.


The topic has already been chosen and correlates with information presented in Mosaicos. Your composition is in Spanish and must contain a variety of verbs and grammar points learned in class. A minimum of 80 words distributed in 10 sentences is expected for full credit.

Students will have 20 minutes to complete their composition without the aid of books, dictionaries, notes, etc. In fact, during the composition only the paper given to students by the professor will be permitted on their desks.

Students are required to make an appointment with an ETBU tutor to correct their compositions.

Students are required to write their composition on the day indicated on the syllabus Absent students without legitimate verification will automatically receive a 0 on their compositions. Contact your professor if you have to be absent due to an emergency or to a university-approved activity.
Composición Topic: “¿Qué hace Ud. los fines de semana?” Your new girlfriend/boyfriend would like to know all about your weekend. Describe your activities, and be sure to use some of the following verbs: pedir, oír, preferir, dormir, and vestirse. Begin 3 statements with “Por la mañana…, Por la tarde…, Por la noche…” Add any information you consider pertinent to the completion of this composition (10 sentences minimum). You may consult the composition rubric for information pertaining to the calculation of your grade.
Entrevista: (Oral Proficiency Interview)

Your professor will meet with students during the semester for their oral assessments and final oral proficiency interview.

Prepare for your final oral interview by systematically reviewing the chapter questions (preguntas) and visual materials practiced in class.

Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. Please turn off cell phones and other devices (blackberries, iphones etc.). If a student is asked to leave because of his/her behavior, he/she will be counted absent for the day. No student is allowed to leave class for an extended period of time.

All cell phones must be put away in the student’s backpack during lab.

Tutoría: The Division of Modern Languages offers free tutoring to all students enrolled at ETBU. All students should register at to access the Spanish tutoring schedule. Tutoring sessions take place in (Scarborough 104) and in the ACE center (Meadows).


The etbu email is our official means of communication; please check your messages on a regular basis. You can also call me (903) 923-2271 or stop by my office during office hours. Other hours are available upon request.

Composition (1) 25 points

Oral Assessments /Interview (3), & Reading (1) 50 points
