SPN 364L • Applied Linguistics
9:30 AM-11:00 AM
The goal of this course is for students to develop a knowledge of basic linguistic concepts and principles as applied to teaching Spanish. The course presents an overview of the morphological, syntactic, and semantic systems of Spanish with a focus on areas of greatest difficulty for English speakers.
In addition, students will explore a variety of sociolinguistic aspects of language learning, characteristics of the heritage speaker, and foreign language teaching methodologies. NOTE: Make-up exams will be given in the case of emergency only. Any student who requires accommodation because of a disability may request it. He or she may be asked to present documentation from the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities specifying the special need.
