DESCRIPTION

This course is designed for students who have at least the equivalent of one semester of college level Spanish. The primary aim of the course is to develop the four basic skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) through a communicative, collaborative and cultural approach.

The course combines several integrated approaches aimed at developing your skills. Most in-class time, driven by the structure of the textbook and accompanying activities, is devoted to speaking and practicing Spanish through a combination of group-based and individual activities, focusing on grammatical structures, language functions and vocabulary. Lessons also focus on a wide range of contemporary cultural themes through the use of varied materials such as advertising material and short film clips. Onsite activities such as field studies to markets and universities, and regular interviews and conversations with members of the local community, will give you a unique chance to rapidly implement your linguistic development in real-life.

Special extra-curricular activities, such as music concerts, cooking classes, exploring museums and parks, Spanish movie night, or possible language-exchange opportunities will be announced and your instructor will help you identify which activities would be most useful for you. These, and other cultural components of the course, will also promote your knowledge of Spanish and Spanish people, as you learn about Spanish society, and thus learning Spanish gives you a privileged opportunity to develop sensitivity towards cultural differences and to understand the ways in which culture and language interlock. In this sense you will be encouraged to exploit the value of these lessons not just as a useful aid to your progress in other courses at the GlobalCampus, but as a set of tools for unlocking a wide range of intercultural discoveries whilst living and studying abroad.

By the end of the course, you are expected to have mastered basic grammar and lexical structures, so that you'll be able to conduct a simple conversation and to write short and basic texts with some degree of competency. You will be able to speak about yourself and your family, to introduce people, to interact with the host community and to follow short and simple conversations.
