  1. Demonstrate the ability to understand, interpret, discuss and explain a wide variety of written and oral communications in the target language.
  2. Apply the ability to use with accuracy the grammar, syntax, basic vocabulary and idioms of the target language and to compare these usages with English.
  3. Demonstrate the ability to explain, compare, and contrast the institutions, history, social practices, and artistic and literary tradition(s) of the countries and culture(s) in which the language is spoken in their socio-historical background and/or their cultural significance.
