This is a brand new addition to the Work-Life Spanish calendar and is reserved for our most advanced students. Enrollment into this course is limited to students who have tested into the course via our Level Placement Test or through a WLS instructor. The focus of this course will change each semester, allowing us to use television, podcasts, music and literature to cover a wide range of topics based around the students’ own interests, such as global issues, popular science, environment, politics, culture, entertainment, religion and much more.
The fall semester will be dedicated to season 4 of the Spanish series "El ministerio del tiempo". Prior to each session, students will watch a pre-selected episode on the RTVE website. During each class, students will discuss the plot of the episode and the relationships between the characters, clarify new expressions and unknown grammar concepts which arose during the viewing of the series, and exchange ideas regarding the historical aspects that were present in the show.
Students enrolled in the course must be caught up on the series until the point at which the course will resume each semester.
