Spanish for Business (FLS3615)

15 credits

In this module we will cover a variety of business-related matters associated with social and cultural aspects in Spanish-speaking countries.

The module develops communicative language skills and communication strategies at the C1 level of the Common European Framework for Languages – CEFR, where you will analyse, criticise and summarise the content of written and aural documents on business related topics.

It is based on proficient communicative activities such as reception, production and interaction, and adopts an action-orientated approach of language teaching and learning. You will develop all core language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) in a range of current business-related contexts.

You will be expected to have an interest in using Spanish in business contexts, although no formal prior business study is required. The module is taught entirely in the target language.
