In this course, students will improve their Spanish conversational skills through the discussion of films in Spanish. Student presentations will help the student improve their public speaking skills. In addition, the students will improve their listening comprehension through exposure to native speech. The films will introduce students to culture, some history, vernacular speech and regional accents. This course offers a new and different vision of language learning and use. The films serve as a catalyst for thought provoking cultural and linguistic examination. This offers the students the ability to express themselves and to expose themselves to the diversity of cultures in the many Spanish speaking countries. The students will broaden their knowledge and analyze, compare and enrich their vocabulary and hone their analytic and critical thinking skills through their enhancement, solidification of the knowledge of the language, and its variety of uses.
