Course Description

  • The objective of this course is to provide students with an INTERMEDIATE understanding of the Spanish language, focusing on communication and proficiency. This course focuses on the 3 modes of communication: interpretive mode (understanding what is heard and read); interpersonal mode (speaking with another; writing informally); and the presentational mode (speaking in front of others; writing formally). All 3 modes are practiced using knowledge of cultural products, practices, and perspectives. We want students to use all 3 modes of communication in culturally appropriate ways.
