Spanish


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Curriculum

The curriculum in Spanish is designed to help students acquire basic communication skills in the Spanish language and develop an understanding of the cultural contributions of both Spain and Latin America. Students with no background in the language begin in the introductory courses, while those with sufficient prior training may start in one of the more advanced classes. Students who complete the intermediate level Spanish courses will have a thorough exposure to the fundamentals of the language as well as some acquaintance with Spanish and Latin American culture. Lakeland’s Spanish program offers students an opportunity to combine a language minor with another area of study where knowledge of a foreign language is an asset or to use their coursework as an integral part of a liberal arts education.

Students are advised to speak with a member of the Spanish faculty or the chair of the Humanities Division for information regarding qualifying for advanced standing placement.

Students who major in Spanish will be able to:

  • demonstrate both competence speaking Spanish and a listening comprehension of spoken Spanish, including conversational skills in the language;
  • demonstrate appropriate skills in reading and writing Spanish, including a mastery of the language’s grammar and vocabulary;
  • understand and illustrate Spanish history and culture, including daily living patterns, societal structures, institutions, value systems, and traditions; and
  • read and analyze works of literature in Spanish, assisted by an understanding of the most important styles and periods of Spanish literary culture.
