SPA280.1 Spanish in Action (Buenos Aires Prequel) (Fall, Spring)

Taught in Spanish at FLACSO Argentina (Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales, Sede Argentina).  In this course, you will work with different communicative tasks through a hierarchy and gradation of grammatical and lexical contents and integrated skills. Through conceptual presentations and proactive explanations of oral and written interaction, you will put the language into action in real-world communicative contexts.

The main goal includes the understanding and production of different text types and discursive modes to achieve proper and accurate use of the target language according to the expected level. Completing the course will enable you to:

  • Understand the characteristics of Rioplatense Spanish in different socio-cultural immersion contexts
