AP Spanish Language and Culture

The AP Spanish Language and Culture course is a rigorous course taught 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 traditional print resources that include literature, essays, and magazine and newspaper articles with the goal of providing a rich, diverse learning experience. Students communicate using rich, advanced vocabulary and linguistic structures as they build proficiency in all modes of communication toward the pre-advanced level.  The AP Spanish Language and Culture course is a college prepatory course in which the student may earn college credit through a proficient performance on the AP Spanish Language and Culture exam in the Spring.  Therefore, students will be held to the same standard as a university student.
