Studies in Spanish Language and Style

Mariana Bono, Course Head
Carolina Chaves-O'Flynn

An advanced language course designed to increase students' fluency and accuracy in Spanish with an integrated approach to content: classes and assignments draw on various types of texts (literature, film, visual media) that focus on Madrid and Buenos Aires. Students hone their linguistic skills by engaging in discussions about the urban environment, and its cultural and artistic productions. The course aims to raise intercultural awareness and to explore the contexts in which cultural values and meanings are created. Reading and writing assignments cover different genres, and verbal interaction and personal production are actively encouraged.
