Learning objectives
The course aims to provide students with advanced competences in Spanish language through its historical evolution, with special focus on lexis formation and the cultural framework in which it takes place. The objective is to develop critical reading and metalinguistic awareness skills. The course has a theoretical and practical approach, consisting of critical text reading, with special attention to the argumentative essay. In parallel, the acquisition of advanced syntactic structures of Spanish will be promoted, also in the communicative use, and through the analysis of the discourse markers used to structure the text and fulfill different interpersonal functions.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students are expected to have Spanish language competences matching C1+ level of Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). They will also be able to recognize and analyze the syntactic and lexical structures of an essayistic text, and to discuss effectively on specialized topics and about the themes of the course.
