              The skills learned and practiced in the following areas: grammar, writing, speaking, listening, and reading comprehension are an extension of the Spanish 1 and 2 programs. The class is designed to further develop and refine the students’ understanding and use of the language.  Cultural, social, national, and economic awareness and understanding of the people of Latin America and Spain are gained using Spanish in real life contexts through a simulated living abroad project.  A variety of tools and resources will be used throughout the year. Some examples include: podcasts, youtube video clips, an educational Spanish soap opera, authentic texts and other technologies to communicate and explore issues and themes of the Spanish-speaking world.  Utilizing the skills acquired in the first two years of Spanish, students will build and strengthen their foundation of their knowledge and will be able to communicate using Spanish for interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational communication purposes. The teacher will use Spanish mostly as the mode of instruction.
