  2. Commercial and advertising texts: the business letter, advertisements, the advertising letter.

  3. Journalistic texts: the article, the author’s column. Press writers.

Objectives:

This course intends to give students the knowledge necessary for analyzing and satisfactorily producing specific texts pertaining to different fields. For this, the course will consist of class analysis of real texts, the goal being to recognize both textual and grammatical characteristics of the different types of analyzed texts. We will pay special attention to the linguistic aspects, for which the class will complete exercises that will allow the students to develop a linguistic repertory.
Methodology:

Classes are based on attendance and participation on the part of the students, working individually and in small groups. Students will prepare homework for class in order to recognize the structure and linguistic characteristics of the different types of texts. In this way, students will understand which characteristics their work should hopefully have. After analyzing each type, students will produce a text following the model of the different varieties that were covered in class.
Grading:

The evaluations will be based on the work completed within and outside of the classroom. We will use a learning evaluation that keeps in mind the teaching-learning process and the process of written composition. The analysis of the different types of texts includes explanations on the exact grading criteria with which the students will use to evaluate each other. In this way, the grading becomes in itself a teaching-learning activity. Regular class attendance will also be taken into account.
