FLS 212 is a study of the language structures and vocabulary necessary for an intermediate level of communication in Spanish together with cultural and technical issues of our global society in the context of the Spanish-speaking world. This is achieved through class lectures encompassing grammar structures in conjunction with the technology and culture of Spain. The culmination is a final project through research on an engineering design that reflects some aspect of Spanish culture. The idea is to exhibit culture and technology working together and even possibly how this form of technology has influenced the culture.

FL 395 offers a wide vision of Spain by being a course that complements FLS 212. It is mixed with history, art, culture and science/technology. There is a dual focus on language and experiential learning: we’ll spend minimal time in classrooms, allowing you to enjoy the city of Sevilla but there will also be visits to Cordoba to see the Mezquita, Granada for a visit to The Alhambra, a trip to the beach and Roman ruins around Seville in addition to a local vineyard and an olive factory where you’ll receive tangible instruction about the chemical processes for making wine, the use of centrifugal force, the Roman conquest of Spain, and more.
Coursework done in FL 395 will assist in your decision for the final project you will complete for FLS 212.
