This course is an occasion for practicing oral expression in Spanish while discussing Spanish and international current affairs of culture, politics, history, science and the like. We will read and discuss press articles stemming from the best newspapers of Spain such as El Mundo, El País and ABC. Occasionally we will also base our discussion on selected podcasts on the same general topics of written press. The tutor will clarify vocabulary and/or cultural references and will trigger the discussion by providing questions that will be discussed in individual groups.
