The course intends to outline the phonetic and phonological systems of contemporary standard Spanish, as well as of its main varieties.

Assessment methods and criteria

LINGUISTIC COMPETENCE REQUIRED
Level 3 (ALTE ), B2 (Council of Europe).
Assessment of linguistic competence will be based on certificates issued by the CLA (University Linguistic Centre) or by the Instituto Cervantes.

RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING THE LINGUISTIC SKILLS CERTIFICATION - WRITTEN TEST AND REGISTRATION
We would like to remind the students that, where exams and and registrations should take place, lectures are charged to check only the results concerning linguistic certificate (CLA test) carried out during the same exam session.
Therefore, the students that have got the linguistic competence, introductory to the Spanish language written test, during the previous CLA sessions shall ask for a paper copy of the certificate in the testing office before coming to the test or the registration previously taken. In case of absence of the certificate, neither the registration nor the test will take place.
