Class Details

This course focuses on the acquisition and improvement of critical communication and analytical skills in Spanish for use both in and outside of the United States. We address all four of the primary language skills (listening, reading, writing, and speaking), with particular attention to the unique needs of students who have received a majority of their exposure to the Spanish language in informal or domestic environments. Through the use of materials and vocabulary taken from a variety of real-life contexts, but with primary emphasis on the diverse Latina/o communities of the United States, this class aims to sharpen heritage speakers’ sociolinguistic competency and ability to interpret musical, cinematic, and literary texts in Spanish. Please note that students who have completed the majority of their formal education in a Spanish-speaking country are not permitted to take this course without prior permission of the instructor.
