Prerequisite – Spanish IV, B or better 5 per/wk – 5 credits and permission of instructor
Full year course
This course is designed to develop students’ reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills and to prepare them for the Spanish Language AP exam. Selected readings include contemporary works by Spanish and Latin American authors as well as articles of current interest from newspapers and magazines. Mastery of grammar, syntax, and idiomatic expressions at more sophisticated levels of speaking and writing will be emphasized.
Students who take the course must accept the challenge of very demanding work all year, and are expected to take the AP exam in May as the appropriate conclusion to their efforts.
