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
should not take S280 and look at taking a higher level class.  Have
