Topic description

In this topic students will review, consolidate and extend the work undertaken in previous Spanish language topics 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 you will be expected to be able to:

  1. Communicate in speech and writing on a range of social and political topics using grammatical, syntactical and lexical structures acquired throughout the semester
  2. Read and discuss authentic written and oral texts of moderate difficulty
  3. Demonstrate the ability to recognise and use a greater range of specific Hispanic socio-cultural features

Key dates and timetable

(1), (2)

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.

FULL

If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
