This course aims to extend the students' ability to communicate clearly and effectively, both in spoken and written Spanish, at B2.1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for languages. It explores and helps students become confident in the use of selected aspects of Spanish grammar, vocabulary, reading, conversational and writing skills. Students are also exposed to complex texts and audio-visual materials in which the contemporary cultures and societies of Spanish-speaking countries are explored in detail.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- use and understand vocabulary, grammatical structures, pragmatic content and sociocultural aspects of Spanish at the B2.1 level;
- communicate orally and in writing in less controlled situations at B2.1 level, integrating all aspects of the course;
- extract, analyse and use information from oral, audiovisual and written Spanish texts, including additional resources;
- be responsible for their own learning practices and personal goals as an autonomous learner; and
- engage with literature in Spanish at B2 level and critically analyse it.
