This subject aims to provide students who have a strong command of the Spanish language with a broad range of social and political situations in order to express their needs, ideas and arguments in Castilian and Latin American Spanish. Students learn further how to communicate in Spanish within a wide range of professional and academic situations at formal and informal levels in oral and written forms. The four language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing, both individually and in combination, are further developed using authentic materials covering a rich variety of situations. A sophisticated range of authentic material, including films, documentaries, testimonies and music with lyrics, with regional and social variants, and specific registers, such as the Caribbean, the Andean countries, Latino-USA and Spain, are used for learning, and students engage in impromptu debates of specific topics and write critical essays.
