Primary Instructor:

The principal aim of both the topics and non-topics courses is to acquire a more profound understanding of the history, politics, society, culture, customs, and literature of the Hispanic world through listening, writing, reading, and speaking activities in Spanish. At the same time, students develop the language tools, both grammatical functions and vocabulary, necessary to discuss issues of relevance to Hispanic culture and to analyze these situations while expressing their own personal opinions, reactions, conclusions, and possible outcomes to hypothetical situations. Therefore, the practice and application of grammatical features and vocabulary are integrated into the content of the course, and students are expected to formally study and practice these structures individually through the explanations provided in the textbook and the practice activities assigned as homework. Materials include newspaper articles, cultural readings, videos, short lectures, listening comprehension activities, and computer materials.

TEXTS for non-topics sections:


  • Más allá de las palabras: Mastering Intermediate Spanish
    Includes: Mastering Intermediate Spanish Book 2 (blue book) and workbook/lab manual
