Spanish 1 attempts from the outset to bring the student to an acceptable understanding of the spoken word, to speak with grammatical accuracy and with good pronunciation, to write with grammatical accuracy, and to begin to understand and appreciate cultural differences in our societies.
Spanish 2 introduced in Grade 10, although essentially placing stress on the audio lingual skills of foreign language learning, lends more emphasis to reading and writing, and continues to blend essential cultural knowledge into the program.
SPANISH 3 COLLEGE PREP.
Students, without exception, must have achieved a final average of 85% or higher in Spanish 2 to go on to Spanish 3. Spanish 3 continues with the audio-lingual approach, making heavier demands on the skills of reading and writing. At this level, all of the four language skills (listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing) are challenged by the more advanced concepts of the Spanish language. Cultural materials continue to be an integral part of the program.
