This is a core prescribed course open only to Junior Honours Hispanic Studies students and a selected range of other programmes at the appropriate level. This course aims to enable you to identify and use, accurately, fluently, and with an appropriate level of sophistication, a range of vocabulary and linguistic registers at advanced level.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
Reading and writing skills are honed though the exploitation of a variety of academic, journalistic, literary and other Spanish and Latin-American texts. Aural and oral skills will be developed through oral classes, the private-study linguistic exploitation of Spanish and Latin-American programmes and films, and other activities. Special attention will be paid to those grammatical areas which are still likely to cause difficulty to advanced students. The course curriculum reflects the emphasis placed on self-directed learning and private study at this level.
