Course Description

Prerequisite: S250 or Consent of the Department.

This course offers a review of the main grammatical structures in Spanish by examining and practicing them in real contexts. Through a variety of readings and documentary films on different aspects of Latin American society, students will consolidate their knowledge of Spanish grammar as they practice reading, listening, speaking, and writing about contemporary topics such as biodiversity and sustainability, globalization, sports, migration, human rights, and gender equality. Among other activities and assignments, students are expected to participate in class conversations, give oral presentations, and write several types of short compositions. By the end of the course, students will have improved their vocabulary and grammar production as well as their oral and written skills, while gaining new insights into contemporary Latin American cultures and events. 

Note: HISP-S 280 is for L2 speakers of Spanish; Heritage speakers who grew up hearing/speaking Spanish at home should register for HISP- S281.

Note: HISP-S 281 counts the same as HISP-S 280 for the Spanish major and minor.
