Conversation and Composition
This first half of the yearlong intermediate-level language course is designed for students who are interested in developing their ability to speak, read, write and understand Spanish. A comprehensive grammar review is included. The texts chosen for the course serve as a general introduction to Hispanic culture and literature. Short articles from the Hispanic press and Spanish-language magazines, language software, and a video series of images from Spanish-speaking cultures are among the materials on which class activities may be centered. One additional 50-minute practice session per week, conducted by a language teaching assistant, will be required. Prerequisite: SPAN 111Y-112Y or equivalent. Offered every year.
