    This course, taught in English with all readings in English for maximal understanding, is aimed at promoting understanding among present and prospective teachers of Spanish as a second language of the differences between English and Spanish in the categories of grammatical case and aspect. The course offers in a language that non-specialists can understand better explanations than the ones found in textbooks that are either incomplete or erroneous or both. The category of case includes areas such as the distinction between subject and object pronouns, passives and impersonals, constructions with se, the gustar-type construction, and the contrast between ser and estar. The category of aspect focuses on the preterit/imperfect contrast. Class will be a flexible combination of lecturing, group discussion, and translation exercises.
