|This course continues to expand upon
culture and facilitate language acquisition through listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students will
interact with more sophisticated authentic language in context. Content continues to expand in order to express
more complex ideas, in order to express personal meaning and to apply different strategies and techniques to go
beyond casual conversation and express opinions, make suggestions on familiar topics, as well as some abstract
issues and plans. Students demonstrate an increased awareness of cultural norms, values, and culturally relevant
appropriate customs and events. Accuracy becomes quite high and for high frequency structures and vocabulary but
more complex discourse is still developing and requires a somewhat sympathetic listener or reader. Students will
continue to demonstrate the ability to think critically by analyzing linguistic structures and reflecting on
making cross-cultural comparisons. This course is taught primarily in Spanish. This course has the option of a
letter grade or pass/no pass.
ADVISORY: Spanish 2A or equivalent.
