Describe your spoken and written Spanish proficiency (ex: can read newspapers, novels, etc. and make speeches, converse, etc.; or highest level of Spanish class at Williams):

Without looking, would you know what the PRI is? What happened on July 2, 2000? Could you name two people currently in power in Mexico?
If you donâ€™t know the answers (which is fine), would you be willing to dedicate time to acquiring a background on Mexican politics (taking PSCI 222 qualifies)?
