Special emphasis will be given to the development of writing skills appropriate for academic and professional situations. A multi-faceted approach to the language will help the student gain a solid grasp of the Spanish language and all of its varieties and awareness of the diversity of the Hispanic communities both here in the US as well as in the Spanish-speaking world.
