Program Overview

Program Description:
The materials and the activities provided throughout the course allow for an approach to various cultural, political and social current aspects related to the Hispanic world in general and, more specifically, with the Spanish culture, Catalan culture and the city of Barcelona. Living with host families will make this experience unique.

This course will allow students to fine tune their Spanish skills at an advanced level by becoming immersed within Barcelona’s culture. By activating communicative and discursive strategies, students will be trained to gain a fluid use of the language in both conversation and written communication, with particular emphasis on correctness and linguistic appropriateness.

The course will focus on the basic characteristics of the main text genres (description, narration, exposition and argumentation) with the aim that students are able to properly interpret a variety of complex texts and produce effective descriptive, narrative, expository and argumentative texts in the target language. Grammar and style will be reviewed in order to improve language proficiency. A wide range of cultural activities and excursions will complement the course, as we explore the rich in culture city of Barcelona.
