These two sequential intermediate courses are for students with a basic knowledge of Spanish. They review and extend students’ communication skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing) and cross-cultural competency, with emphasis on the oral production of Spanish. Students will have numerous opportunities to use linguistic and cultural information to communicate in realistic interpersonal situations and to express ideas and opinions. Through the exploration of authentic visual, audio, and written materials, students become participants in a wide range of language learning and cultural experiences. Because these materials are products of communities within Spain, Latin America, and the US, students gain more detailed knowledge of the diversity within the Spanish-speaking world. Taught in Spanish.
