This is a core prescribed course open only to Mode B Junior Honours Hispanic Studies students. 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.
Single or joint Honours in Hispanic Studies (Mode A) students must take the full-year course SP 30A3 Spanish Language 6. Spanish Language 6A is a single-semester course that will be taught together with SP 30A3 but will only be taught in the first semester. It is open only to single or joint Honours in Hispanic Studies (Mode B) students who go abroad in the second semester, or by permission of the course coordinator. It is not intended for non-graduating and Erasmus students.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
