The course is designed to build on language skills acquired in previous levels. The class is conducted exclusively in Spanish and will fine tune the grammar and language structures learned the previous year with the addition of some new concepts. Students will be able to express their ideas in a variety of tenses and will be able to talk about nature and the environment, science and technology, the economy and jobs, pop culture and social media, and literature and art. The study of literature will be introduced in the form of the short story where students will learn to analyze and discuss literature in Spanish. As in previous levels, students will have access to authentic materials such as films, songs, podcasts, newspaper and magazine articles as well as other print media. Students will be assessed on their oral, aural, written and reading skills. The course will increase students’ fluency and cultural competency as well as prepare them for the AP Spanish Language & Culture course the following school year. Prerequisites: Honors 西班牙三 or equivalent, teacher recommendation and/or placement test.
