UNIT OF STUDY

This unit builds on the language skills acquired in SPAN2611. It introduces you to more complex grammatical structures, and expands your vocabulary so that you are able to communicate both in writing and speech in a wider variety of situations, including some more formal or academic uses of the language. Activities used in the classroom are designed to allow you to further explore the culture and history of the Spanish-speaking world as well as improving your Spanish.
