Intermediate Spanish: Cities with history
In this course you will learn about the history of Spain and the important place of Arab and Jewish cultures in that history. We will revisit some key dates and we will see what life was like in the cities of Segovia and Córdoba where Muslim, Jewish and Christian cultures coexisted for some time. In order to develop these topics, you will learn and practise the presente histórico, preterite and imperfect tenses and the use of time expressions to link various chronological events. There will also be opportunities to broaden your vocabulary in this area and to practise different ways to form nouns in Spanish. Finally, you will write descriptive texts using a variety of stylistic devices like analogies and metaphors.
Although the introductory text is in English, the main course itself is entirely in Spanish.
