CONTENT: This course is a continuation of Spanish 201 and is designed to further develop students' Spanish skills. Students refine grammar usage through continued review of basic structures and the study of complex structures. They expand their spoken Spanish skills through discussion and analysis of cultural topics, current events, personal experiences and literary and journalistic texts. Students are provided opportunities for focused listening through use of recorded texts (conversations, music, video) and for oral expression through general classroom and small-group discussions and oral reports or interviews. Readings in the course focus on both historical and current cultural and social issues in the Hispanic World and conclude with the reading of a novel. Classes meet three times per week and are conducted in Spanish to maximize exposure to the language.
