AP Spanish Language and Culture

Credits: 1

This course, conducted entirely in Spanish, includes individual speaking practice and analysis of more advanced grammatical concepts and structures. Students at this level work toward a proficiency in Spanish that will prepare them for the AP Language and Culture exam. Students at this level are able to: support opinions, explain in detail and hypothesize; sustain understanding over longer stretches of time; read and comprehend more abstract and linguistically complex texts; and write about a variety of topics with significant precision and detail. Discussions, presentations, projects, readings, and research are vehicles by which students explore the literature, history, and culture of the Hispanic and Spanish countries.


Prerequisite: Spanish IV (Accelerated) or with department approval.
