Buenos Aires (pop. 13 million) is well-known for its cultural diversity and dynamic atmosphere, making it one of South America's most elegant and vibrant cities. The city's history revolves around the Western European immigrants whose descendants have preserved their influences since the 19th century by way of architecture, art, and style. Buenos Aires has also adopted some more modern architectural styles, which provide a notable contrast to the city's deep-rooted traditions and history.
SPAN 201: Third Semester Spanish (Pre-requisites: SPAN 102, 103, or equivalent, or through USD placement exam; It is the students' responsibility to ensure they have completed the pre-requisites by the program start date. Placement exams are only valid for ONE YEAR, so students need to make sure their placement exam results are valid for January 2016.)
Professor: Dr. Alejandro Meter
Lecture material will be enhanced through site visits and excursions throughout Buenos Aires and its surrounding environs.
Third semester Spanish, the final course of the core language sequence, completes the introduction of the basic structures of the language with continuing emphasis on communicative proficiency. Students will participate in cultural activities within the local Spanish speaking community in Buenos Aires. In addition, the course will feature a strong social justice component as an overarching theme.
Students are housed with Argentine host families (2 students per family). Students take their breakfast and dinner with the host family. Living with an Argentine host family is an integral part of the immersion experience and students are absolutely required to embrace this aspect of the program. Independent housing outside of the host family is not available for this program.
Program cost includes 3 units of USD tuition, accommodations, two meals a day with an Argentine host family, international health insurance, and selected site visits throughout the city. Not included in the program cost are flight tickets, ground transportation to/from the Buenos Aires airport, additional meals, optional excursions, and spending money while in Buenos Aires.
