There is one oral exam during the last week of the quarter (FALL 2020: The oral exam will be completed in Zoom, during the last week of classes). This exam consists in a conversation between you and one of your classmates moderated by your instructor. It will last for about 15 minutes. The purpose of this activity is to evaluate your spontaneous speaking ability and your investigation of a previously selected topic related to a Spanish-speaking country.
Throughout the quarter, your instructor will give you more detailed information about the topic and format of the oral exam.

VERY IMPORTANT: The topic needs to be approved by your instructor before the exam.
