1. COURSE PURPOSE, GOALS, AND OBJECTIVES

 

The language program at The University of Texas focuses on the development of three major types of competencies (all equally ranked in terms of importance):

 

(1)  linguistic competence (linguistic proficiency in Spanish including knowledge of phonetics/phonology, morphosyntax, lexicon, discourse, etc.)

(2)  communication/ interactional competence (communicative abilities in Spanish including knowledge of sociocultural uses of the language, pragmatics, cultural background/perspectives)

(3)  metalinguistic competence (awareness of language as a conceptual, symbolic  system)

 

Within the language program, SPN 327G is the first in the Advanced Spanish Grammar and Composition two-course sequence. It is a bridge course between lower and upper-division Spanish designed to

  • help you inductively master grammar points of particular concern to speakers of English
  • perfect your grammar skills through a variety of tasks designed to clarify grammatical points, including oral, reading, and writing activities
  • acquire and apply strategies of composition development (pre-writing, writing, revising, editing, and evaluation)
  • promote critical and integrative thinking skills.

 

This learner-based course will lead you through a “guided inductive approach” that presents you with selected samples to analyze in order to

  • discover patterns of oral and written discourse,
  • formulate hypotheses about the linguistic and communicative functions of the Spanish language
  • develop an understanding of Hispanic culture and literature.

 

All in-class activities, readings, movies, and assignments are in Spanish.

 

Expectations: This is a fifth-semester course designed to strengthen and advance your knowledge of Spanish. Students enrolled in this course are expected to

  • have mastered basic grammatical concepts (agreement; verb conjugations: present, past, future; pronouns)
  • understand indicative, imperative, and subjunctive moods
  • read and write at a fourth-semester level or at an advanced proficiency level

If you are weak in any of these skills, it is your responsibility to study and master them and/or visit your instructor at the beginning and throughout the semester to help you reach the expected basic level that is necessary for you to understand and master advanced notions.

The course will be entirely taught in Spanish
