The Structure of Spanish (SPANLANG 101) is a third-year course in the study and analysis of the Spanish language. The course may be complemented by an optional, community-engaged service learning (199SL) component in which students are paired with a Spanish-speaking Stanford worker to co-create digital stories about the worker's life experiences. Spanlang 199SL counts as a Cardinal Course (certified by the Haas Center).

In this class, students closely analyze Spanish grammatical structure; they learn linguistic terminology to identify word functions and sentence types in texts. This course also explores the distinction between Spanish grammar as a formal system and its grammar in everyday life.

Spanlang 101 is offered in the Winter Quarter.
