This course is the first half of the intermediate level sequence in Spanish language. Students will do a thorough review of all grammatical structures studied in the first year of Spanish. Students will also build on this foundation by studying additional grammatical structures. Emphasis will be given to developing proficiency in the use of the past tense and in developing a working use of the subjunctive mood. In addition, students will work to develop reading and writing skills through short compositions and a cultural project that requires the reading of current media from Spain and Latin America. Particular attention will also be paid to social and historical contexts of Spanish speaking countries. Class participation will also be strongly emphasized. This course satisfies the Core Curriculum requirement in Cultural Perspectives if not used to satisfy the Core Curriculum International Language requirement. Prerequisites: ILCS 102 or 110 or equivalent as determined by the Foreign Language Proficiency Test.
