Continue building on your Spanish language experience in this intermediate course.
Conducted mainly in Spanish in order to maximize your contact with the language, we’ll focus on the practice of language in the four basic areas: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
The goal is to provide you with the ability to acquire a natural way of communicating with native speakers, as well as to introduce you to the many facets of Spanish-speaking cultures.
Through lecture, video, small group and class discussions, visual aids, and situational approaches, we’ll practice grammatical material that cover these four main areas.
Additional cultural readings and activities will be provided in the class, and we’ll engage in debates, discussions, role-playing, and more so that you can track your progress.
At the end of this course, you’ll be able to:
- Talk and about yourself and your environment: foods, vacations, celebrations, pastimes, shopping for different items, and housing and neighborhoods
- Ask questions, compare and describe personal traits, needs and experiences in your interaction with native speakers using the imperfect past tense for descriptive narrations
- Write short essays about past events to compare them to present and future expectations
- Read, understand and answer questions from narrations, newspapers and magazines
- Define in general terms the following countries: Cuba, La Republica Dominicana, Puerto Rico, and Costa Rica
