Introduction to Advanced Spanish Grammar
This course utilizes an integrated approach to bridging the gap between intermediate and advanced levels of language, putting particular emphasis on some of the most essential topics of Spanish grammar such as: 1) Rules of orthographical accents. Uses of past tenses, indicative mood; 2) Prepositions (a, por, para); 3) Ser vs. Estar; 4) Basic uses of the subjunctive/subordinate clauses; 5) Conditional clauses. The approach to these grammar topics will take into consideration the theoretical aspects as well as the practical use in speech and writing. Authentic cultural readings of diverse types and sources will serve as a context for linguistic practice and written exercises in the classroom. (1 unit) This course meets two hours a day.
