This course aims to prepare intending Honours students of Hispanic Studies for their compulsory period abroad in a Spanish-speaking country.
The course will develop further Spanish language skills, both receptive and productive. 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 aural study and grammatical reinforcement study.

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 aural study and grammatical reinforcement study.

oral practice class.
