Course Description

Building on Spanish Language 6 this course is topic-based, and aims to enable students to identify and use, accurately and fluently, a further range of advanced lexical and syntactical features, and linguistic registers. Reading, writing and translation skills are further honed though the exploitation of a wide variety of literary, journalistic and other Spanish and Latin-American texts. Aural and oral skills will be further developed through the linguistic exploitation of Spanish and Latin-American programmes and films, and other activities. Special attention will be paid to further advanced grammatical areas which are still likely to cause difficulty to students by focusing on advanced writing skills. The course curriculum reflects the emphasis placed on self-directed learning and private study at this level.


Details, including assessment, may be subject to change until 31 July 2022 for 1st half-session courses and 23 December 2022 for 2nd half-session courses.
