  • This course is designed to continue the development of the Spanish language and knowledge of cultural practices and traditions.  Students who have successfully completed Spanish 2 with a minimum score of C or better are admitted. The course is aligned with the California State Standards and the Common Core Standards.  All activities and lessons are tailored to meet one or more of these standards. Emphasis is on continued development of the four major language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. In addition to these skills, students will explore the many facets of culture and heritage in Spanish-speaking countries. Students are expected to participate in Spanish. It is a total immersion course and English is rarely used.
