SPAN 3165. Spanish Phonetics (3-0-3) Prerequisite: SPAN 3150 and SPAN 3160 with a grade of "C" or better. Written and oral exercises and phonetic transcription reinforce theoretical points as students improve their pronunciation through the study of the distribution and articulation of Spanish-language sounds. Regular pronunciation exercises are accomplished through the use of written texts and audio recordings.
SPAN 3166. Advanced Spanish Grammar (3-0-3) Prerequisite: SPAN 3150 and 3160 with a grade of "C" or better. This is an advanced course in Spanish grammar. It will prepare students for further work in Spanish, and it will provide them the background necessary for more advanced courses in Spanish. While much of the focus will be on continued mastery of the most difficult points of Spanish grammar, the course will also strive to present a perspective on grammar as a communicative tool, not as a set of rules to be memorized.
