Prerequisite: Spanish II or satisfactory placement exam results
Spanish III is an intermediate course in Spanish that builds upon the basic course content of Spanish I and II with more complex grammatical structures and thematic vocabulary aimed at strengthening the four language skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing. The higher level vocabulary and grammar are closely linked to their communicative functions within a cultural framework. The five standards at the core of each unit are: communication, culture, connections, comparisons and communities. Emphasis is placed on developing communicative competence and fluency, so active daily participation in Spanish is essential. Spanish will be the primary means of communication in this course.
