Students will on average spend 150 hours over the trimester undertaking the teaching, learning and assessment activities for this unit. This will include: 4 face-to-face contact hours per week (1 x 1-hour Class, and 1 x 2-hour Seminar, and 1 x Computer-based seminar).

Cloud (online) students will be expected to dedicate the equivalent time for this unit (1 x 1-hour recorded lecture, 1.5 x hr. self-directed study, and 1.5 x hr. Blackboard sessions per week).

All students are required to dedicate up to 10 hours a week to their Spanish Studies: 4 compulsory hours of class-time (as above); 3 hours of independent study and research, homework, revision, and online problem-based exercises; and 3 or more hours of immersion in Spanish (through films, music, reading, etc.).


This Unit will advance students’ fluency and competence in Spanish to a high-intermediate level, low-advanced level. Students will continue to learn and practice important grammatical and lexical components of the Spanish language while further exploring the societies and cultures of the ‘Spanish-speaking world’. The unit organises the teaching and learning of grammar and vocabulary around key issues and features of Latin America and Spain. The unit examines the socio-linguistic conventions of Spanish by looking at a range of topics related to the contemporary world. This unit assumes two and a-half years of prior knowledge or study of the language (B1).
