In Spanish IV students will move towards more authentic communication and interaction using Spanish. All verb tenses learned in Spanish I - III will be applied in practical and real-life situations in order to increase fluency. Students will grow increasingly more comfortable sharing ideas in different tenses as well as with the use of the subjunctive. In addition to building confidence and expanding vocabulary, students will also study a variety of advanced grammar concepts. These will provide an additional layer of scaffolding which will be built upon during both Spanish 4 and AP courses. Students will also continue to examine the different cultures of Spanish speaking countries through various mediums including the Internet, films, music (amongst other materials).
