Spanish Literature for Intermediate Speakers (B1)
Students will improve fluency and confidence in Spanish conversation and comprehension while gaining familiarity with major Iberoamerican authors and trends from the 20th century. Through the reading of short stories and group discussions, students will amplify their Spanish vocabulary and indirectlyaddress intermediate grammatical concerns in context. This is an excellent review course for students who have previously studied the indicative past tenses, future tenses and conditional tenses.
In this class we will talk about events that will take place with the future tense, express what might occur with the conditional tense, incorporate direct and indirect object pronouns when discussing him, her and us, learn the vast uses of se and lo, use the future and conditional tenses to express probability and use the imperative to give commands.
This class will use storytelling to help you learn how to talk about what you did yesterday with the preterit tense, express what you used to do with the imperfect tense and describe your life experiences with the present perfect and past perfect tenses.
