This course focuses on the study of the appropriate use of the Castilian language and its normative aspects. We can find errors of accentuation, punctuation and even spelling, but are we able to detect grammar and lexical improprieties? To our surprise, they are present in many media: radio, television, newspapers, textbooks, etc. On numerous occasions, they cause misunderstandings, double meanings and ambiguities; surely this has happened to you more than once.
During the course, we will address curious elements of the Spanish language that we had never considered and, in a practical way, we will learn from our own -and probably frequent- mistakes in order to communicate effectively. We will leave aside the classic and tedious morphosyntactic analysis and word formation in order to address the language from a more communicative point of view. The main objective is to achieve adequate levels of expression in the different contexts in which we interact.
