Some folks are still not completing all the Actividades Culturales (Cultural Activities), the Hablar Speaking Assignments, the Escribir Writing assignments or the Proyectos Finales (Final Projects). These assignments are critical as the Actividades Culturales are 15% of the final grade, the Hablar Speaking Assignments are 15% of your Final Grade, the Escribir Writing assignments are 15% of your final grade, and the Proyectos Finales (Final Projects) are like tests, valued at 25% of the final grade. Not doing these assignments makes it mathematically impossible to pass the course, as you are missing 70% of your total grade. Please complete those missing assignments as soon as possible.
