UC/CSU eligibility: This course is approved for “E” Language credit
Prerequisites: Grade of B or better in Honors Spanish 4
This course provides students with the language learning experiences that will enable them to communicate in Spanish in a wide range of situations. Students will explore language concepts within a variety of themes and contexts. By the end of this course students will be able to carry on meaningful conversations on many topics, understand and be understood by non‐native and native speakers, be able to write naturally in various formats, and be more culturally aware with a focus on a global perspective. This is a year‐long course, culminating with the AP Spanish Language and Culture Exam. * Please note that this is a separate series from the stand-alone Honors Spanish 4 and also from IB Spanish. Students who wish to take AP Spanish must enroll in this year-long blocked class. Students who complete this course with a “B” or better, and who pass English with a “C” or better, can apply for the “Seal of Biliteracy” during their Senior year
World Language Department Recommendation: Taking Honors Spanish in the same school year.
