Description

Grundkursen i spanska fokuserar på språk, historia, kultur och samhälle i den spanskspråkiga världen. Kursen ger också muntlig och skriftlig färdighetsträning. Den består av fyra delkurser. Vår undervisning äger rum på campus eftersom språkförmågan utvecklas bäst i samspel med andra studenter och med läraren.

 

I delkurs 1, Muntlig och skriftlig språkfärdighet (7,5 hp), ligger fokus på att läsa, förstå och skriva egna texter i olika genrer, samt på att öva upp den muntliga språkfärdigheten. För att skapa en djupare förståelse för talad spanska ges en introduktion till spansk fonetik och fonologi. Delkurs 2 och 3, Spanskspråkig kulturhistoria I och II (7,5 hp vardera), hänger tätt samman och syftar till att ge kunskaper inom spansk och latinamerikansk historia, kultur och samhälle. Delkurs 2 tar som utgångspunkt det emblematiska årtalet 1492, som markerar början på en ny era, då Spanien och det spanska språket konsolideras. Det är också då som landets expansion börjar på allvar, inte minst genom kolonisationen av Amerika. I delkurs 3 studeras självständighetsperioden i Latinamerika, framväxten av de moderna staterna samt det militariserade 1900-talet, präglat av inbördeskrig och diktatur i såväl Spanien som Latinamerika. Den fjärde delkursen, Spansk grammatik (7,5 hp), ger teoretiska kunskaper om det spanska språkets struktur, delvis genom att spanskan kontrasteras mot svenskan. Här erbjuds också praktisk övning i att konstruera meningar och kortare texter.

How to apply

Lund University uses a national application system run by University Admissions in Sweden. It is only possible to apply during the application periods: October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

Extended application deadline

Sometimes the application deadline is extended for a specific programme or course. In these cases you will find the message "open for late application" by the programme/course information on universityadmissions.se. You apply with the usual application steps. As long as this message is showing, it is possible to apply, but late applications are processed in order of date, so it is still important to apply as soon as possible. Please note that if the programme/course does not have an extended deadline, it is not possible to apply late.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
