SPAN 2140 INTRODUCTION TO READING

This course lets students practice their language skills by introducing them to a varied selection of readings and other cultural media in a language immersive class.  This is a course designed for intermediate and high intermediate language students.  Throughout the development of the course, students study a wide variety of materials such as short stories, newspaper articles, songs, websites, documentaries, and films that provide examples of significant cultural aspects of the Spanish-speaking world.  Through the study of these, students will acquire an ample cultural knowledge, while at the same time they will be exposed to different oral and written registers of the language.  Through the comprehension and analytical discussion of these materials, students will be able to practice and improve their communicative abilities.  Although is it not a course focused on grammar, the study of the materials will provide a space to work on refining a proper use of language.
