This course is a continuation of Spanish 103. It focuses on the review of grammar as well as on refining writing and speaking skills. A variety of written and audiovisual journalistic media will enable students to deepen their understanding of Hispanic cultures. The course is taught remotely. There will be two different sections of this course: one will be taught by Professor Carlos Macías Prieto, and the second one by Professor Carolina Melgarejo-Torres. Each section will have a maximum number of 12 students.
Format: lecture; Students will spend 4 hours per week in class, in active on-line engagement with their Professor, Teaching Associate (TA), and classmates.
