The Spanish Glossary

Welcome to the Spanish Glossary!

This Glossary is for students and is developed by students. The exciting news is that you will also contribute to this Glossary as you progress through the course. You are encouraged to visit it frequently to learn from the excellent work produced cooperatively by all the participants in this course.

It is worth visiting the Glossary on a regular basis—you will find it to be an excellent reference and learning tool that will accelerate your language acquisition. The Spanish Glossary is constantly evolving, and is getting bigger and better over time through regular contributions by the students enrolled in this course.

Each student is expected to contribute to the Glossary by posting new entries selected from the learning materials. At the end of each unit, you will find the instructions to make your contributions to this Glossary. At the end of the course, you will compile all your entries (two per unit, twenty in total), and submit them to your tutor via an assignment drop box for marking purposes. You will find the assignment drop box at the end of Unit 10.

You can consult the Glossary in two ways: you can visit the Glossary directly to look up a particular word, or you can click the hyperlinked glossary words found throughout the course. Once new entries are posted in the Glossary and accepted by a tutor, they will be automatically linked wherever the concept words and phrases appear throughout the rest of the course. Each entry in the glossary contains its phonetic representation, a brief definition, and its pronunciation.

Enjoy your Spanish Glossary!
