Topic description
In this topic students will review, consolidate and extend the work done in SPAN2201 Intermediate Spanish 1 with an emphasis on improving their oral-aural comprehension and their use and understanding of spoken and written Spanish.

The topic aims to continue to equip students with the skills that will enable them to communicate independently with native speakers of Spanish. There will be an emphasis on the production of articulate language, both formally and informally, in an extended range of contexts, including personal and academic situations.
Educational aims
This topic aims to:

  • consolidate and expand students' knowledge of Spanish acquired at previous levels, with the introduction of new grammatical structures and vocabulary

  • allow students to further develop their communicative competence through participation in activities involving group or pair interaction

  • develop active participation in collaborative learning and foster independent language learning

  • expand students ability to recognise and interpret socio-cultural aspects of the Spanish-speaking world
Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic students will be able to:

  • communicate in speech and writing on a range of social and political topics using grammatical, syntactical and lexical structures acquired throughout the semester

  • read and discuss authentic written and oral texts of moderate difficulty

  • demonstrate the ability to recognise and use a greater range of specific Hispanic socio-cultural features
