Prerequisite: Spanish III or satisfactory placement exam results
Spanish IV is an advanced intermediate course in Spanish at the high school level. It enriches students’ proficiency and cultural understanding, preparing them for college and career-level Spanish. Thematic unit organization encourages students to make cross-cultural and cross-curricular comparisons as they take on more advanced cultural and linguistic adventures. Cultural challenges encourage students to apply Spanish vocabulary and more advanced Spanish grammar concepts in context. The five standards at the core of each unit are: communication, culture, connections, comparisons and communities. All four language skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing – continue to be developed. However, emphasis is placed on developing communicative competence and fluency, so active daily participation in Spanish is essential. The class will be conducted in Spanish.
