This course is designed for those students who need to develop their writing production skills, and who are making the transition from fourth-semester (Intermediate) to Advanced coursework in Spanish. Throughout the course, students shall analyze different discursive genres (text types), establish the base from which to improve their syntax, learn orthographical rules, refine their use of discursive connectors, and expand their vocabulary. The main goal is for the students to create their own texts intended for different communicative objectives, and acquire the necessary tools to develop their own style in Spanish writing. (1 unit)
