Course Overview The AP Spanish Language course is designed to help fine-tune and improve students' reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in Spanish in preparation for the AP exam taken in May. AP Spanish Language is an advanced course and the work done in this class is reflective of that which is done in a 5th or 6th semester college Spanish course. Therefore, students should be prepared to work hard. We will review grammar as needed, acquire a wide range of new vocabulary and idiomatic expressions and read selections of prose and poetry written by Hispanic authors. We will also read newspaper and magazine articles and listen to radio broadcasts in Spanish to keep abreast of what is happening in the Spanish-speaking communities in the U.S. and internationally. Goals Students will improve their aural communication skills through discussions based on relevant topics from the Spanish-speaking world. This includes casual conversations with their classmates and teacher as well as well as formal discussions and debates based on written texts and/or aural sources. Students will improve and refine their formal and informal writing skills. Students will improve their formal and informal presentational skills. Students will broaden their reading skills of both formal and informal texts. Students will broaden their understanding of the Spanish-speaking cultures through authentic readings and radio/TV/aural sources. Students will become familiarized with and prepared for each section of the AP exam as outlined in the most recent AP Spanish Course Description. Main Texts García Serrano, M.
