Description

Elective Course


This course will help students strengthen and further develop the grammar skills acquired during their previous studies of Spanish. The main aim of the course is to provide students with the necessary tools to better understand the Spanish language structure. Students will be introduced to linguistic concepts to analyze, reflect on, and understand Spanish grammar. Students will then build on these insights in order to complete tasks designed to reinforce the usage of the target structures. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to identify core grammatical features, and to use appropriate terminology to describe them. They will also be able to apply grammatical insights to evaluate and to demonstrate appropriate usage of the grammar topics reviewed. This course assumes no prior knowledge of linguistic terminology or analysis. Topics covered include word formation, sentence structure, grammatical issues, and Spanish varieties.
