This course is intended for those planning to major or minor in Spanish in a university program. It is also recommended for those needing Spanish for international business, diplomatic, military, medical, law, or sales careers. The course is conducted entirely in Spanish and summer reading is required prior to the start of the academic year. An emphasis on grammar requires that students read, write, comprehend, and speak with almost native competency. Students will review all tenses, read a wide variety of short stories, write with an emphasis on revision, and practice speaking with their final “performance” in mind. AP Spanish is the equivalent of six semesters at the university level. It is fast-paced, intense, and not for the faint-of-heart.
PRE-REQUISITES: Spanish I-III
RECOMMENDED FOR: 12th
