About this Unit
In 2013, this unit replaced by 102034 - Spanish 203 and 102035 - Spanish 204. This is an intermediate unit for students of Spanish. This unit also fosters cultural and social understanding by presenting aspects of contemporary cultures and societies that use the language as well as through research work on specific socio-cultural aspects that are of interest to the student. This is post-beginner unit for intermediate level students of Spanish language and culture. This unit is suitable for Post HSC entry. It aims to further develop all four core skills, listening, speaking, reading and writing, towards more sophisticated communicative transactions ranging from casual to formal styles of speech. However, the special focus of this unit is on developing, in particular, reading comprehension, and writing skills over a range of written registers. The content for reading and writing activities is selected from contemporary materials e.g. Daily exchanges in writing, book/film reviews, mini dramas, magazines as well as websites in relation to textual aspects of contemporary culture and society of China. A range of CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) activities are utilised for this unit.
