Course Description

Building on work done in SP 2025 / SP 2525, the course will develop further language skills, both receptive (aural comprehension capacity through tuition based on audio and video material; reading comprehension through analysis of written Spanish and translation into English) and productive (compositions, translation into Spanish and oral language). Classes on grammatical and linguistic analysis will contribute to the development of both sets of skills. In addition students will complete a structured self learning programme of audio-visual study and grammatical reinforcement study.

2 weekly one-hour written language and grammar classes; 1 weekly one-hour oral practice class.
