F501 Winter 2020 Let’s Watch Movies!
Tuesdays, 11:50–1:15, Jan. 28–Feb. 18
Instructor: Ligia Glass
What better way to spend the time in the winter than watching movies! If you love movies, this is the class for you. Come and join the Intermediate Spanish Class to view films of the Hispanic world where you will find interesting themes in a variety of situations that will enhance your knowledge of the history and culture. The students will be able to hear the different accents, and learn about people’s everyday lives, food, religions, traditions, family values, and more. Subtitles will provide flexibility and facilitate understanding, although discussions will mainly be in Spanish. Two films will be viewed. A summary of each film, glossary of terms, cultural notes, and topics for conversation will be provided to students to facilitate Spanish discussion after the films are viewed.
