While expanding on the grammar essentials covered in SPAN 125, this course helps the student further develop listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in Spanish.  It is directed toward students who already have a good linguistic-communicative competency, broadening their contact with different kinds of texts, deepening their grammatical understanding, and enabling them to communicate through a variety of forms and registers.  Upon completing the course, students should be able to make themselves understood with accuracy and fluency and participate easily in a wide range of formal and informal communicative situations.  An array of literary texts and films not ordinarily considered in language classes will be used.  Three hours a week with the lecturer plus one hour with the language assistant.  Conducted entirely in Spanish.  Prepares students for SPAN 199. This course counts for the major.

Requisite: SPAN 120, Spanish Placement Test or with permission of Language Coordinator. Limited to 15 students per section. Fall semester:  Senior Lecturer Maillo and Assistants.  Spring semester:  Lecturer Granda, Lecturer Bel and Assistants.

If Overenrolled: Amherst undergraduates below level of senior year will have priority
