This course is designed to develop and enhance students’ knowledge of the Spanish language through reading, writing, listening and speaking. The course is meant to be comparable to fifth or sixth semester college and university courses that focus on speaking and writing in the target language at an advanced level. For this reason, both the teacher and the students will speak almost exclusively in Spanish throughout the year. The aim of this course is to prepare students for the Spanish Language Advanced Placement Exam in the spring and to achieve a high level of language ability in all language skills. In addition, students will improve their cultural knowledge of the Hispanic world by exploring and presenting on art, history, holidays, food, traditions, etc.

Spanish B is a Junior High course.  This class covers the 2nd half of first year Spanish.  Students will master the present tense and begin exploring the past tense.
