Preparing for the AP* Spanish Language and Culture Exam is a rigorous course taught exclusively in Spanish that helps students to improve their proficiency across the three modes of communication: Interpretive, Interpersonal and Presentational. This course is designed to help you prepare for the AP exam, and focuses on the integration of authentic resources including online print, audio, and audiovisual resources, as well as traditional print resources such as literature, essays, and magazine and newspaper articles. Students will communicate using advanced vocabulary and linguistic structures as they build proficiency in all modes of communication toward the advanced level. Class is conducted completely in Spanish and includes frequent writing and integration of skills with a review of grammatical structures, which are troublesome for second-language learners. Advanced organizational and analytical strategies are taught, and students will complete the course feeling better prepared to take the AP exam.
