LIVING AND LEARNING IN SPANISH -SPAN 299

This course allows students who are part of the Spanish Learning Living Community to explore Latin American and Spanish culture away from the classroom. The course hosts speakers and faculty on the Spanish Floor and engages students in cultural events both on and off campus. In addition to expanding students' Spanish language skills, goals of the course include improving students' knowledge of Latin American and Spanish culture by attending museums, plays, films and other cultural events. Students will write reviews about their experiences in order to assess their progress.
