Improve your spoken and written Spanish while getting involved in the local community in Spring 2015
SPA 313: Advanced Spanish through Service-Learning
This course provides students the opportunity to improve their linguistic proficiency in oral and written Spanish while exploring and serving the Latino community of Lexington. Student work will consist of a variety of activities including classroom meetings, oral presentations and interviews, group and individual projects, and active participation in community programs and events, all of which are designed to encourage development of practical, task-based language proficiency. The service-learning component of this class requires a minimum of 25 hours of work and may be completed through regular participation in an after school tutoring program or through active contribution to community events and projects that serve the Latino community of Lexington. The goal of this service is to allow students to explore and respond to the challenges of intercultural communication in a personal context. While this course is conducted primarily in Spanish, students will use both English and Spanish during their service work. Pre-requisites: SPA 210 and 211, or 215, plus one 300-level Spanish course.
Tuesday and Thursday 11am-12:15am
