Advanced Spanish/Spanish for Native Speakers

El curso está diseñado desde la perspectiva de la Literatura Comparada, disciplina académica creada en el XIX y que tiene como objetivo establecer un diálogo fructífero entre las diversas tradiciones culturales a partir de las obras literarias. En este sentido el curso destacará la lectura y el análisis de textos literarios -en su mayoría obras literarias canónicos de cada tradición-, leídos en traducción y algunos escritos originalmente en castellano. El curso está dictado siguiendo los lineamientos y requisitos del Programa Polimodal y el Bachillerato Internacional (IB)en específica relación con la preparación del examen internacional a fin del próximo año.
