The AP Spanish Language and Culture course is a rigorous course taught completely and exclusively in Spanish that requires students to improve their proficiency across the three modes of communication. The course focuses on the integration of authentic resources including online print, audio, and audiovisual resources, as well as printed materials. We encourage students to practice the target language consistently with the people around them so that the usage of the language can be as real and authentic as possible. In this course students develop a solid proficiency in integrating, comparing and contrasting in the target language as well as synthesizing written and aural materials, the formal and informal writing process, the informal and formal speaking proficiency through quality, authentic, and level appropriate audio and video materials. They are also exposed to the real world of the Spanish speaking world by listening and watching authentic and level appropriate videos from various sources from online magazines, newspapers and other related sources. They are also exposed to the Spanish literature including texts, magazines, articles, literary texts and other non technical writing. Several resources are used to facilitate the learning process and to give extra practice of topic already acquired. Technology is a powerful tool used to teach this course.
