Heritage speakers of Spanish learn different registers of the Spanish language in their homes and communities from an early age. In this course, students will use this knowledge as a springboard to expand their use and command of Spanish with increasing confidence and in a variety of social and cultural contexts. We will study cultural texts—from the most informal to the most formal, from Hispanic communities both here in the U.S. and in the Spanish-speaking world, in Spanish and Spanglish,—and will discuss students’ own experiences growing up as heritage learners of Spanish. Conducted in Spanish and Spanglish.
Tuesdays andThursdays, 1-2:20 p.m.
