We review and study further the Spanish grammar necessary for reading. Conducted in English.
Students read French texts of moderate difficulty and translate them into English. Differences between French and English ways of written expression are pointed outand emphasis given to translations that read not as literally translated French but as English originals. Conducted in English. Prerequisite: a basic knowledge of French and English grammar.
