The Structure of Spanish

The Structure of Spanish (SPANLANG 101) is a third-year course in the study and analysis of the Spanish language. The course may be complemented by an optional, community-engaged learning (199SL) component in which students are paired with a Spanish-speaking Stanford worker to co-create digital stories about the worker's life experiences. Spanlang 199SL counts as a Cardinal Course (certified by the Haas Center).

In this class, students closely analyze Spanish grammatical structure; they learn linguistic terminology to identify word functions and sentence types in texts. This course also explores the distinction between Spanish grammar as a formal system and its grammar in everyday life. For further information, consult the Spanlang 101 Course Calendar and Syllabus or contact alimiano [at] stanford.edu (Ali Miano).

Spanlang 101 is offered in the Winter Quarter.

Writing and Composition Workshop

Writing and Composition Workshop (SPANLANG 102) is designed for advanced students with a good understanding of spelling and syntax. In this course, we focus on the craft of writing, including brainstorming, planning, outlining, drafting, revising, and editing. Spanish majors write mostly on literary or cultural topics, while non-majors may choose to explore topics relevant to their respective academic specialties.

The course may be complemented by an optional, community-engaged service learning (199SL) component in which students are paired with a Spanish-speaking Stanford worker to co-create digital stories about the worker's life experiences. Spanlang 199SL counts as a Cardinal Course (certified by the Haas Center).

Spanlang 102 may be taken concurrently with courses in the Spanish major, so that this course acts as a workshop for writing to be completed for the concurrent Spanish course. For further information, contact hwon [at] stanford.edu (Hae-Joon Won)title="Hae-Joon Won" or Ali Miano.

Digital Storytelling Project

The Spanish Language Program's Digital Storytelling Project pairs students concurrently enrolled in any 100-level Spanlang course with a Spanish-speaking Stanford worker to co-create digital stories about the worker's lived experiences. Students interested in this program enroll in Spanlang 199SL, Directed Service Learning, earning credit for a Cardinal Course (certified by the Haas Center) while gaining valuable insights into the important contributions and rich life experiences of Stanford workers. Workers, in turn, co-create digital stories to share with their families or to feature on this page, according to each worker's individual preference.
