AbstractThis course gives participants an initial insight into the contemporary reality of the global Spanish-speaking community through journalistic texts.
The skills they practice in this approach include reading, writing, and oral interaction, and the course includes reading and writing activities and oral debates.
ObjectiveParticipants work on two areas: First, due the size of the Hispanic world, each week they focus on a nation or a region, thus gaining a deeper insight into that nation. Second, participants can choose to investigate various aspects of the Hispanic world, according to their own interests.
This course gives an overview of the societies that form the Hispanic world in two ways: On the one hand, the course looks at the perspectives of the various nations that comprise this international community, and on the other, it looks at various aspects that define this community, including its politics, news, traditions, and culture.
