Spanish 415 / 461 / 490: Hispanic Authors. Manuel Bretón de los Herreros (1796-1873).   A class devoted to one of the most prolific and famous playwrites in 19th century Spain. Students will achieve a deep understanding of the issues involving gender and politics in Manuel Bretón de los Herreros' works. Readings will include long and short plays and poetry.

Spanish 202: Intermediate Spanish II. As a last step of the language sequence, you will practice structures that you will need to communicate effectively in Spanish. The class is aimed to help students to develop essential skills like speaking, listening, reading, and writing in Spanish. Even if your Spanish may be a little bit rusty or "oxidado" after the intersession, you will feel comfortable after a couple of weeks practicing and interacting with your classmates in the target language.
