The humanities are academic disciplines that study human culture. The humanities use methods that are primarily critical, or speculative, and have a significant historical element—as distinguished from the mainly empirical approaches of the natural sciences. The humanities include ancient and modern languages, literature, philosophy, and religion.[1]

Welcome, disciples, to Spanish 1 - your guide to the Spanish language! This course is designed for English speakers. Knowing Spanish will improve your experience while visiting a Spanish-speaking country or learning another Romance language such as French, Italian, or Portuguese. Today, 21 countries in Latin America, Europe (Spain) and Africa (Equatorial Guinea) have Spanish as their national language. In the United States, it is offered as a foreign language course in the majority of high schools and, with a growing Hispanic minority, the number of people who use the language increases by the day. Over 500 million people speak Spanish worldwide, and Spanish is an easy language to learn for fluent speakers of English or a Romance language. Spanish-speaking countries have beautifully rich cultures, something especially notable in literature, food, music, and the arts. Throughout this course, there will be 'knowledge sections' that contain facts about Spanish-speaking countries and their cultures. Our forum is a place where you can receive feedback and ask questions about Spanish. (more...)
