Intensive Intermediate Catalan is conceived to enable students to acquire from basic to intermediate notions of the Catalan language through task-based daily communicative situations. The instructor will provide the necessary tools to guarantee an autonomous learning process focused on the student's individuality. The course's practical nature will promote both the learning of the basics of Catalan grammar and the participation in oral activities in order to facilitate communication in different socio-cultural contexts. This course will develop the student's capacity to achieve a progressive mastery of the four language main skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking. The materials used for this course will follow a communicative approach so that students can learn and practice Catalan in situations that are both real and useful.

*Students must register for both Catalan 290STA and Catalan 290STB in the same semester for a total of 5 credits.
