HISP-S 280  Spanish Grammar in Context (3 credits)
Prerequisite: S250 or equivalent.

The overall goal of this course is to provide students with the
language skills necessary to pursue upper division course work in
Spanish. The main focus is on the development of formal linguistic
skills through explicit grammar instruction and review, vocabulary
building exercises, reading original texts by contemporary authors,
and exploring the link between literature and culture through
writing and conversation. The main objective of S280 is to
strengthen studentsí comprehension and application of the most
challenging grammatical structures for second language learners
within a meaningful language context. This objective will be
accomplished with a thorough review and practice of problematic
grammatical structures, the analysis of these and other structures
in the context provided by a series of literary readings and
selections from an audio book, and the application of these
structures in writing and discussion sessions. The course will be
conducted in Spanish.

Note:  This class replaces S310; if you have already taken S310 you
