SPAN 6501B: Adv Language for Mastery

This course utilizes an integrated approach to bridging the gap between intermediate and advanced levels of language, with particular emphasis on the development of formal speaking and writing. Review of grammar and development of vocabulary are linked to proficiency functions (e.g., narrating, describing, explaining, analyzing, hypothesizing, and defending opinions) in both speech and writing. Authentic cultural readings of diverse types and sources serve as a context for linguistic practice in the classroom. This course meets two hours a day. (1 unit)
