This course will expand on the material covered in Spanish 300 as well as introduce new skills to improve students' written and oral proficiency in the Spanish language. The functions of syntax, vocabulary and semantics will be the main objectives of this course. The class will cover verbs of double construction and debate strategies. Through an in-depth exploration of pronouns and impersonal expressions, students will study verbal communication. Students will also study elements of textual construction, semantics and juxtapositions through essay-writing exercises. Students will also concentrate on grammar refinement, lending special attention to using adverbial clauses and conditional hypothesizing. Grammatical elements such as ser/estar and other copulative verbs will also be points of analysis.

This course is for students who:
Can understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning. Can express him/herself fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions. Can use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes. Can produce clear, well-structured, detailed texts on complex subjects, showing controlled use of organisational patterns, connectors and cohesive devices.
