302 Advanced Spanish for Heritage Speakers (Sotomayor) SVL
TR 9:30 - 10:45
This course is designed especially for students exposed to Spanish from a young age, either at home or in their communities. Students will increase their linguistic confidence, developing their awareness of differences between formal and informal registers of Spanish and expanding oral, listening, reading, and writing skills in both registers. Grammatical patterns and orthographic conventions will be reviewed and practiced through a variety of language projects, classroom discussions and oral presentations.

This course integrates a service-learning component in which students will have the opportunity to engage with the local Hispanic community of Greensboro through service, while enriching their language learning experience. Students will learn more about their cultural heritage and develop an appreciation for the cultural and linguistic diversity of different Hispanic communities, both locally and around the world.
