Knowledge of languages and cultures is vital in a world that
is increasingly interdependent. Learning Spanish and its
culture is a way to foster international and global
understanding and enhances the ability of an individual to
meet today’s challenges.
Spanish literature is one of the best ways to learn the language and to get a "feel" for it because language is about words and the way we communicate, verbal and written, and because literature contains the various styles of expression.
Learning Spanish through its literature enhances the imagination, cultivates the quality of language and may help us as students to gain an understanding of the past and contemporary society.
