On the one hand, linguistic knowledge already acquired will be mobilized and, through reflective practice, its appropriate uses will be analyzed. On the other hand, other aspects considered essential for a good command of the language will be introduced. Simultaneously, different text types and genres will be worked on, reflecting on its construction.

** Due to the pandemic situation, the course may have to be taught as a distance learning course.
