SP1002 Spanish Language and Texts 2

SCOTCAT credits:20
Academic year(s):2017/8
SCQF Level 7
Planned timetable:12.00 noon

This module advances the four skills developed in SP1001. A language coursebook introduces a higher level of linguistic difficulty through a series of exercises, participative classwork, grammar instruction and self-access work. The literary texts represent contemporary and earlier Spanish as well as Spanish American writing, chosen for linguistic enrichment and cultural significance. The module aims at a level of attainment sufficient to enable the student to enter confidently the 2000-level modules.
