SPNL11-101: Spanish Language and Culture


Spanish is the second most commonly spoken language in the world. It is one of the official languages in over twenty countries and in many international organisations such as the United Nations or the European Union. Learning Spanish will expand your cultural awareness, your ability to communicate effectively across cultural borders, and it will also improve your global career opportunities.  The subject is designed for students with no previous knowledge of the Spanish language. Using a content and language integrated approach, Spanish Language and Culture will enhance your awareness and understanding of Spanish speaking societies and cultures, and help you develop basic communicative proficiency in the Spanish language.
