SPAN 291PR - SPANISH AS A NEW LANGUAGE, LEVEL 3

This course aims to develop self-learning students. By using the basic communication tools that the student already has, the course improves both oral and written communication skills, directed at students achieving the competencies of a native speaker. Based on research that shows that language is processed in blocks or groups of words, not just word by word, this level allows students to develop their learning based on a notional and functional approach based on the articulation of communicative intentions and the concepts the speaker is referring to.
