Course Description
AP® Spanish Language and Culture is designed to prepare students to communicate efficiently in Spanish using the three modes of communication (interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational) defined in the Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century. This course is conducted almost exclusively in Spanish and students are encouraged to also use Spanish outside the classroom. A variety of authentic audio, visual, audiovisual, written, and print resources will further the students' abilities to enhance their understanding of the Spanish cultures studied, make connections between topics, compare their native languages and cultures with the Spanish language and cultures, and use Spanish in real-life settings.

The units progress from personal themes and topics through global contexts and complex issues. Thematic organization encourages students to increase their awareness of different Spanish-speaking cultures as they read authentic selections (both informational and literary), listen to authentic audio selections, and watch authentic video segments. The grammar text provides students with a solid review of grammar concepts learned in previous levels and allows them to reinforce those concepts via text explanations, audiovisual tutorials, and practice exercises. These concepts will strengthen interpretive skills and communication skills as students gain confidence in their ability to apply these upper level grammar concepts in their speaking and writing tasks.

The course is based on the six units of required content in the AP® Spanish Language and Culture Course and Exam Description outlined by College Board. These are Families in Different Societies, The Influence of Language and Culture on Identity, Influences of Beauty and Art, How Science and Technology Affect Our Lives, Factors That Impact the Quality of Life, and Environmental, Political, and Societal Challenges.

This course does not include registration for the AP Exam Offering. Students planning to take the AP exam are required to register and sit locally for the AP Exam.
