Spanish Language through Film


Course Code: LSPF-wi24 Categories: , , Tags: ,


Scene association, vocal inflection, facial expression, and visual depictions of places and people are just a few of the ways that viewing  film can help language acquisition. The selection criteria for our Spanish films include cultural diversity, genres of social interest, representation of the respective countries’ cultures, appropriate vocabulary and scenes, and availability on streaming platforms such as Netflix or Amazon Prime. The main objective  is to develop the four essential competencies required for communication in the Spanish language: listening, writing, reading, and speaking. By incorporating films into our curriculum, we can create an immersive and enjoyable learning experience. This fall the films considered will include “El laberinto del Fauno” (Spain), “Coco” (Mexico), “Pelotero” (U.S.-Dominican Republic), “Canela” (Mexico), “Mi obra maestra” (Argentina), “Hasta que nos volvamos a encontrar” (Peru). At home time for film viewing time will be helpful as classroom time will be limited and spent in discussion and language learning.
