The main objectives of this course are to review, solidify and develop reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension skills while simultaneously presenting cultural similarities and differences between the English- and the Spanish-speaking worlds. This course is designed for students with some previous knowledge of the Spanish language. The class will be conducted in Spanish. We will work on all four skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
As the primary textbook we use ¡Recuerdos! Intermediate Spanish and ¡Recuerdos! Intermediate Spanish. Student Activity Manual, by Oscar Ozete.
In addition to the scheduled classes, weekly professor’s office hours, cultural activities, and free tutorial services create a wide range of possibilities beyond the classroom for those students who want to achieve excellence in their learning process.
