Would not recommend this class. It's no longer run by José Luis and is very unorganised, you don't learn much, constant assessment, hard marking, assumed knowledge far above span2010 standard. And we hardly use the compulsory textbook.
This is definitely one of the best courses I have done at UQ and undoubtedly the best and most challenging Spanish language course I have done. José Luis knows the material like no teacher I have had before. He constantly challenges and engages his student with interesting and relevant material.
In my opinion, this course should be mandatory for any student in the Spanish major. You will learn how to write in a range of relevant genres, for example, letters, advertisements, argumentation, and description.
