How is Spanish language relevant to my academic field? What linguistic and cultural resources should I acquire to effectively communicate my academic interests in this language? How do I prepare for a professional presentation in Spanish? What are the limitations of the academic language at the moment of interacting with people in the community?
The Advanced Grammar course 107 will provide cultural and linguistic resources to address the questions above and other common concerns that students have around their proficiency and skills to communicate effectively. This course focuses on helping students to advance their cultural and communicative skills in Spanish, as they share their professional interests with other students. The class will discuss four general topics -medicine, history and human rights, art, and environmental issues-, which will create the context for students to conduct oral presentations and activities around their own academic fields. Another important emphasis of the course will be to connect students’ professional interests to current issues of social justice in USA, Latino America and other world countries.
To expand their cultural and linguistic knowledge, participants will prepare two different types of oral activities for the class: formal-academic presentations and non-formal activities that use colloquial registers.
The RLSP 107 course will require a constant and committed collaboration between participants.
Format: lecture; This course will use Remote Teaching with synchronous and asynchronous classes.
Grading: yes pass/fail option,
no fifth course option
Regular attendance to our online sessions will be strictly required. Because this course will not have any exams, the evaluation will be based on participation, presentations, weekly activities, written reports and a glossary that students will develop along the semester.
