Higher Intermediate: Short Story Seminar

Course Description: In this highly-interactive seminar-style course, students will enjoy the opportunity to read and discuss several short stories by renowned Latin American authors, such as Eduardo Galeano, Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriela Mistral, Julio Cortazar, and Isabel Allende, among many others.

Designed for higher intermediate students with a strong  comprehension and speaking ability, this course will provide you with the venue in which to practice your reading and speaking skills at a challenging level, expand your vocabulary, and enjoy stimulating discussion with other enthusiastic students. The stories will be chosen in order to represent a range of literary styles and country of origin, providing a sampling of the fascinating diversity within the world of Latin American literature. Reading will primarily be done outside of class, providing the substance for detailed analysis of the meaning and themes of the stories, in addition to discussion of the language itself, new vocabulary, metaphors, and stylistic devices.

Join this unique course in which you will also learn biographical information about the authors and deepen the breadth of your cultural knowledge!

All reading materials will be provided in class.
