Films, music, writing and discussion will improve your Spanish language skills while learning more about that interesting European country.

Spanish 201: intermediate Spanish I. A class devoted to keep practicing with stuctures, vocabulary, and culture issues that will help students to improve their abilities to communicate in Spanish.

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.
