This class was tough.
I am a student who always enjoyed taking Spanish classes and learning the language. Although not a lot of people enjoy learning a foreign language, this course is still a great choice. This course furthers you Spanish language knowledge. You also do a lot more speaking in Spanish in this course than you do in the first few years of Spanish courses.
In AP Spanish, you learn even more vocabulary. You also learn some new tenses of grammar such as the subjunctive. On top of that, you learn a lot about the culture and customs of people who speak this language. In AP, you also do a lot more of speaking in Spanish than you do in previous years so you further your ability to speak the foreign language. There was a test at the end of the year to test if you were Bi-Literal and there was also the AP test. These are very hard tests, but by the end of the year, you have a very good knowledge of Spanish, are capable of speaking pretty fluently in it, and are well prepared for these tests.

Advice for students:
If you are planning to take this year long course, I suggest that you review whatever you learned in previous years of taking Spanish the summer before taking this course. Then you will be far more prepared for the course. I also recommend starting to study for the AP test very early on and studying a little bit each night. It is also a good idea to practice a lot of talking and having conversations in Spanish whenever you can in order to work your way towards being fluent. Studying everyday really helped me to improve, not only my test scores, but also my ability to speak in Spanish.
