  1. noticing the conventions of several types of texts in Spanish, such as the use of abbreviations in text messages (tq = te quiero), abreviations in blogging (hola a tod@s), formulaic greetings in telephone conversations (Aquí, Hola, ¿Sí? ¿Aló?), typical phrases for greeting cards ( Muchas felicidades por ....), language in menus (primeros platos, postres, menú del día)

  3. comparing several versions of a news story (such as radio, newspaper and online) to consider how the medium affects the construction and expression of meaning
  4. collecting examples of online and print advertisements, and identifying and analysing language features and grammatical structures used to persuade potential consumers, for example, ¡Compre en los almacenes ‘La Moda’ no se arrepentirá!, ¡Pague menos y lleve más!
  5. understanding the use of elements that provide coherence at a whole text level, such as cohesive devices (sin, aunque, debido a, según, por otro lado), linked paragraphs, introductions and summaries, and sequencing of ideas
