Saddleback Valley Unified School District
This course builds skills learned in Spanish 1 and Spanish 2. Emphasis is placed on conversational fluency in increasingly complex situations. Coursework includes selected higher level reading materials (including short stories, poetry, articles, and/or abridged novels), writing exercises, oral presentations, and a variety of advanced oral interaction. As such, this course aims to develop linguistic confidence and enhance the appreciation of the cultural and dialectal differences of Spanish speaking countries. Spanish 3 is taught primarily in the target language. The goal for students enrolled in Spanish 3 is that they feel prepared and desire to go on to further their mastery in Spanish 4 AP/IB.
This is a college level course designed to prepare students for the AP Exam and/or the IB Exam in Spanish. All skills learned in previous courses are honed; including speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Special emphasis is placed on grammatical accuracy in these areas, building vocabulary, and developing fluid speech in real world situations. Additionally, students will be exposed to the cultures of Spanish-speaking countries.
