1.  PURPOSE, GOALS, AND OBJECTIVES OF THE LANGUAGE PROGRAM

The objective of the Spanish language program addresses the basic tenet of a liberal arts education: the development of a critical thinking approach towards the analysis of language in society. This objective is framed in an overall worldwide trend towards political and economical internationalization and an increasingly diverse and multicultural work environment.

 

The Spanish language program focuses on the development of multilingual literacies through the analysis and use of Spanish as a second language. The program focuses on the development of three major types of competencies (all equally ranked in terms of importance):

 

(1)  linguistic competence (Spanish phonetics/phonology, morphosyntax, lexicon, discourse, etc.)

(2)  communication / interactional competence (sociocultural uses of the language, pragmatics, cultural background / perspectives)

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

 

 

2.  COURSE DESCRIPTION, GOALS, AND OBJECTIVES

A. SPN 611D is the third course in The University of Texas lower-division Spanish program. This is a six-credit course.  The course focuses on further developing speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills in Spanish while building vocabulary, learning basic rules and terminology of Spanish grammar, and gaining a better understanding of Hispanic cultures in order to communicate in an accurate, effective, and informed manner within a variety of sociocultural situations.

 

B. PREREQUISITE FOR 611D: the prerequisite for this course is a passing grade (C or better) in SPN 610 D, equivalent credit transferred from another university, or credit by exam.
