Latin American Culture


Studying foreign languages opens the doors to different countries and different cultures. In learning about another culture, you also learn more about your own. It will make you aware of your native language, and it will help you realize that when you speak or write, you do so to communicate ideas in different ways and in different languages.

The Department of Foreign Languages shares in the mission of the Cornestone Program at Stonehill by offering courses at various levels in French, German, Italian, Latin, and Spanish. The Department expects that students develop and increase their *proficiency in a foreign language, whether continuing one previously studied or beginning a new foreign language. *(Proficiency entails communication, cultural understanding, connections with other areas of knowledge, comparisons on the nature of language and culture, and participating in multilingual communities.)

Prerequisite: SPA 332 (Recommended: 4 years of high school Spanish). This course is conducted in Spanish.

Course objectives: The main goal of this course is to introduce you to Latin America through the study of history, art, music, and literature. Another goal is to emphasize communication and learning in context. All activities in this course are designed to motivate students; to foster the use of critical-thinking skills; and to promote the development of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in Spanish.
