This course is designed to develop and challenge heritage speakers' abilities to listen, speak, read, and write Spanish and their cultural knowledge of the Hispanic world. The goal is for students to revitalize the Spanish they learned at home and develop it further. Emphasis is on reading Spanish literary texts and acquiring or developing Spanish academic language skills. Students write in various formats, moving from well-developed paragraphs to literary responses and personal essays. They learn correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, and capitalization. At the same time, they learn more about the diverse and rich cultures of Spanish-speaking countries by conversing, debating, and writing about key historical and political moments, influential literary figures, and major artistic movements. Ability to speak conversational Spanish is assumed.
