Academic year(s): 2018-2019

Key information

SCOTCAT credits : 20

ECTS credits : 10

Level : SCQF level 8

Semester: 1

Planned timetable: 11.00 am

The module is designed for ex-Beginners in Spanish who wish to move into mainstream studies of language and literature. It involves revision and progressively deeper understanding of the language, intensive practice in oral, spoken and written skills. In the literature component, study is planned so that thorough vocabulary acquisition, analysis of syntax and understanding of extended texts can be realistically achieved. This module not only opens the way to Spanish Honours for ex-Beginners but could be useful for students who wish to study other subjects in Spain at a later date.
