Syllabus – Spanish 3

Western Christian High School – Señora Luna
Prerequisites: Spanish 1, Spanish 2
Course Description:

In level III Spanish, students continue to develop their proficiency in speaking, listening and writing: interacting with other speakers of Spanish; understanding oral and written messages in Spanish, and making oral and written presentations in the target language. Students communicate on a variety of topics using complex structures, moving from concrete to more abstract concepts. They comprehend the main ideas of authentic materials that they read and hear, and are able to identify significant details when the topics are familiar. Spanish is used almost exclusively in the class as students develop the ability to discuss topics related to historical and contemporary events and issues.


Upon completion of level III Spanish, students are expected to be prepared to confidently converse and understand persons from numerous Spanish-speaking environments. They will have developed the necessary confidence in their Spanish communicative ability to proficiently participate in informal, personal friendship exchanges and/or be able to assist in a more serious and formal situation, such as the role of an interpreter in an emergency occurrence. Pleasurable advantages will be derived from students’ ability to read Spanish language books, magazines, newspapers and informational materials such as transportation schedules and/or other consumer information, to attend lectures, movies, plays and to participate with friends in bilingual gatherings. Students will be able to effectively communicate with Spanish speaking individuals in the workplace, and subsequently when traveling to any of the many Latin American Countries where Spanish is the target language.
