Course Description This is a 4 credit intermediate course that develops accurate and idiomatic oral and written expression in a cultural context. Students achieve a higher level of syntactical and lexical competence through reading and discussing essays and literary texts and viewing films. Particular emphasis is on writing academic essays with peer/instructor feedback. Classes are in Spanish and the language is actively used in oral presentations and communicative, creative, and critical-thinking activities. Students review grammar structures on their own with clarification or support from the instructor. This course fulfills the A&S foreign language requirement Option 1. After 2090, you may take SPAN 2140, SPAN 2150, SPAN 2170, or SPAN 2190.
