Course Description: The AP Spanish Language Course is a rigorous course designed to be equivalent to a 3 rd year college level Spanish course. This course will be conducted completely in Spanish and focus on grammar, composition, and conversation, as well as test- taking skills leading to preparation for the AP Spanish Language Examination. Students taking this course will continue to develop their proficiency by repeatedly practicing the target language in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, writing, and cultural knowledge through interaction in Spanish with the teacher and peers. Materials will include authentic audio and video recordings, podcasts, film and written material including newspapers, magazines, and literature. Extensive training in the organization and writing of compositions will be emphasized. Course Expectations Kathleen Taylor srataylorap.wordpress.com (732)
