SPAN 101

Public Group active 1 year ago

This course is designed for the beginner student with no previous experience in the Spanish language. For this reason the classes are taught in Spanish and English. The students are encouraged to express themselves using all their linguistic resources in both languages. The self-evident and primary goal of this class is to provide the basic skills to understand and communicate in Spanish, but also to reflect on the processes implied in the making of speakers. In this course, what we call language will be explored as a social practice that not only produces culture but is culture. A critical and holistic perspective in each and every topic touched in class will be the main thread in the development of the linguistic competences needed to explore our own experiences, opinions, lines of thought, stories and identities.
