In language the four skills of reading, listening, speaking and writing are developed through prepared work and class activities. Language material will reflect cultural aspects of the Spanish-speaking world. The module maintains progress from SP1002; there is a learning gradient. In texts, major critical approaches are studied with reference to the genres of poetry, prose and drama and applied to the critical analysis of specific examples of each from the sixteenth century to the twenty-first, drawn from Spain and Spanish America.
