This course is designed as a review of some of the more difficult (and more interesting) grammatical structures in Spanish, to enable students to fine tune their Spanish grammar and establish more idiomatic, native-like structures. At the same time, the course will introduce students to basic concepts in linguistic analysis, as a key to obtaining better understanding of these structures.
