Montgomery College (MC) has adopted the Lumen Spanish I open educational resource for its introductory Spanish I courses. Each unit incorporates vocabulary and grammatical structures that beginning language learners need as they start to communicate in Spanish, as well as practice exercises, communicative activities, and embedded audio. MC faculty have developed self-graded exercises at the end of each unit, which have been incorporated into the Pressbooks to assess student learning and understanding.

Spanish 1 was designed and developed by the Spanish department at SUNY Oneonta in cooperation with Lumen Learning. This project was supported by SUNY OER Services with funds from New York State’s 2018-2019 budget allocation for Open Educational Resources. Lumen Learning courseware is based on open educational resources (OER). When we find well-designed, effective OER that are appropriately licensed, we use them in our courseware. When we can’t find pre-existing OER, we create original content and license it as OER (under a Creative Commons Attribution license).
