Foreign Service Institute Spanish  - Image The FSI Spanish Programmatic Course volume 2 (of 2) is designed primarily for the student who has access to a tape player for study purposes. If one is not avail-able, these materials should be used in the same manner as are more conventional materials. After pre-publication trials with over 200 students, FSI is convinced that the rate of progress is greater and the quality of performance higher if the student has an opportunity to study new material before reporting to class through the use of facilities that allow him to listen to the recorded portions of the lessons,

The authors like to believe that greater progress and higher quality performance are inherent in some small way in the materials themselves; however the general improvement in achievement is probably attributable more to technique than to anything else. For example, a student who prepares an assignment by himself, with his own tape player, will normally be participating with the language at the enormous rate of 400 to 600 participation per hour. If the same material were being learned in a class shared with only three other students, his participation rate would be reduced accordingly: to 100 to 150 per hour. This participation rate, of course, begins to approach insignificance with a class of twenty or more students. In such large classes, teachers have to resort to choral response techniques in order to counteract the low participation rates.

Much of the success of these materials is due, then, not necessarily to the material itself but to the arrangement of material, an arrangement that allows learning to take place profitably outside of the classroom and thereby fosters unusually high participation rates for the individual students.

Spanish also called Castilian (castellano), is a Romance language that originated in Castile, a region in Spain. There are approximately 407 million people speaking Spanish as a native language, making it the second-most-spoken language by number of native speakers after Mandarin. It also has 60 million speakers as a second language, and 20 million students as a foreign language. Spanish is one of the six official languages of the United Nations, and is used as an official language by the European Union and Mercosur. Spanish is the most popular second language learned by native speakers of American English. From the last decades of the 20th century, the study of Spanish as a foreign language has grown significantly, facilitated in part because of the growing population demographics and economies of many Spanish-speaking countries, growing international tourism and the search for less expensive retirement destinations by North Americans and Europeans.

Spanish is spoken in: Spain, Mexico, Columbia, Argentina, Peru, Venezuela, Chile, Ecuador, Guatemala, Cuba, Bolivia, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Paraguay, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Panama, Uruguay, Equatorial Guinea

Spanish is also called: Castellano, Castilian, Castillan, Español
