Intended learning outcomes

The general aim of the course is that the student should develop a communicative ability in Spanish. This is done in a context where the student develops basic knowledge about Spanish-speaking social systems and an understanding of how nationally/culturally distinctive features can influence leadership style, culture and structures in organisations.

On completion of the course, the student should in speech and in writing, in a way that can be understood by an individual in the Spanish language area, be able to
- describe basic economic social structures in Spain
- identify and discuss culturally distinctive features of organisations in the country/language area
- relate these structures and distinctive features to Swedish conditions

Course content

Through studies of texts, works and material with mainly social and economic contents, the ability to express oneself in a linguistically correct way is trained with contents relevant for the course.
