Advanced Spanish in Context for Heritage Learners

Instructor: Prof. Poala Cadena Pardo

A fifth-semester course, designed specifically for students who have grown up speaking Spanish, this course uses a variety of texts (literature, movies, newspaper articles, speeches and essays) as a basis for reviewing grammatical concepts, developing writing competency, refining analytical skills, and improving overall communication abilities in Spanish. Through work on authentic and original texts, this course continues to focus on refining the four language skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening, as well as further developing critical analytical capacities. With the readings and films, students will explore their socio-historical context and analyze the application of different linguistic structures as tools employed to create meaning and convey a message. Students will be expected to do a significant amount of reading and writing in Spanish 267.

Requisites: Prerequisite, SPAN 205; permission of the instructor for students lacking the prerequisite.

Note: As the equivalent of SPAN 261, SPAN 267 counts as the prerequisite for all upper-level courses in Spanish. Students may not receive credit for both SPAN 261 and SPAN 267.
