Program Description:

Program Overview 

STFL_OviedoThis course will review and strengthen your understanding and use of major concepts of Spanish grammar including verb tenses, the subjunctive, passive forms, prepositions, and subordination, among other grammatical points. In addition, culture-related readings in Spanish will provide you with opportunities to learn new vocabulary in context and to practice conversation by means of in-class discussions. You will also learn and practice the general guidelines of how to write a composition, including organization and structure, coherence, sentence structure, and word choice. This course will also introduce students to the literary, artistic, and historical currents of Spain. 

Outside of the classroom, students will enjoy guided cultural outings in Asturias, where the practical application of the language and culture learning will take place.

Students will take the equivalent of 301, 302, and 303 in Oviedo, Spain.
