Spanish in Context B (R4041)

15 credits, Level 5

Spring teaching

Building on existing levels of proficiency at B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference [CEFR], the module aims to:

  • Enable students to understand the main ideas ideas within complex speech and texts and to communicate effectively in the target language (TL), with fluidity and spontaneity, in a variety of contexts;
  • Provide opportunities, across a selected variety of topics and themes, for participation in advanced level communicative language activities (e.g. listening, reading, speaking, writing, interaction, and mediation);
  • Consolidate and develop the range of complex language structures, syntax, and specialised vocabulary to support consistent accuracy and control in use of the TL;
  • Facilitate the exploration, and analysis of a special subject linked to the student’s chosen field of interest.
