FL 296 / EDLD 513 – Spanish Language & Culture in Queretaro, Mexico

A Summer 2018 Faculty-Led Study Abroad Trip to Queretaro, Mexico

This course is designed to provide participants, either undergraduate or graduate, with a working knowledge and introductory experience in Spanish language and culture. The course is twofold in design.

First, it provides an introduction to basic conversational and written Spanish, including pronunciation, word order and colloquial or everyday expressions. The course promotes communicative competence by developing comprehension and production of basic oral and simple written texts pertaining to social, academic and other contexts.

By participating in a four-week faculty led study abroad experience participants will directly engage in contextualized acquisition and application of the linguistic and cultural knowledge. This engaged learning experience is intended to stimulate student learning, and increase their awareness of communities they encounter in Mexico, as responsible and active participants in our diverse and global society.

Second, through the study abroad experience in Mexico, participants will learn about the cultural and societal conditions of language, life and community in Mexico. Through supplementary readings and activities students will critically reflect upon social, cultural and cognitive contexts and the ways in which these relate to human and community development, as well as their own learning.

The official courses you will be taking are...

Undergraduate: FL 296-613 Study Abroad Experience – this course counts toward Liberal Arts Core requirements.

Graduate: EDLD 513-614 Professional Renewal
