This self-designed minor allows students to strengthen their language skills while becoming familiar with the culture and history of those who speak that language.
Students will examine a variety of cultural texts including literature, film and music. Literary and other written texts will provide examples of language through time and forms of expression in the different Spanish-speaking regions. Spanish language films will offer an opportunity to hear the language in a variety of voices and to see the cities and landscapes of the Spanish-speaking world.
This course focuses on how to use the language and how to use it appropriately. Cultural elements will be introduced to help students understand the usage of the language. Students will develop skills to produce and understand an ever-growing number of sentences in Chinese. Besides the four language skills, training on using a Chinese dictionary and Chinese typing system will be introduced. These two skills will empower them to continue studying Chinese outside the classroom.
