Valdivieso, Jorge
Spanish language training at the Thunderbird Graduate School of International Management is discussed, focusing on the instructional materials and classroom techniques used in advanced Spanish conversation classes. While traditional materials (dialogues, dictation, literature, mass media, video- and audiotapes) and learning activities (recitation, grammar exercises, composition writing, oral and written reports, role-playing, classroom presentations) are used in the intensive courses, emphasis is placed on materials addressing the professional needs of professionals in international business. Specific examples of classroom teaching techniques and materials are described, including pronunciation exercises, dictation, dialogues, magazines, composition writing, reading aloud, and study of novels. A chart indicating time allotments for activities in each day's language class is included. (MSE)
