This course is an introduction to Catalan for students with no prior knowledge of the language. Through a task-based, communicative approach, this course seeks to initiate students into the elements of reading, writing, listening, and speaking in Catalan.
This course aims, from a communicative perspective, to develop in an integrated and meaningful way the fundamental linguistic skills of listening and reading comprehension, and oral and written expression of the Catalan language. Furthermore, emphasis will be placed on lexical and grammatical content always seeking to respond to the communicative and academic needs of the student. Completion of Catalan 120 or an intermediate knowledge of another Romance language is required.
