The objective of this course is to develop students’ oral and writing abilities in Spanish. Students will develop writing skills in Spanish by learning and practicing the main components of different writing styles: description, narration, exposition, and argumentation. Students will learn compositional elements that provide cohesion and coherence in both formal and informal writing styles. Students will develop their oral skills by watching and discussing a number of critically acclaimed films from different Spanish-speaking countries which portray a variety of cultural, social, and political issues. To achieve the goal of improving oral proficiency, students will participate  in in-class discussions and debates on controversial topics presented in the films. By the end of this course, students will be able to write in a variety of formal and informal writing styles and to discuss a wide range of topics. This course is conducted in Spanish. Students who have taken one or more 400-level Spanish classes are highly discouraged from taking this course.
