Spanish IV
(SPA 4)

This course is designed for students wishing to refine and enhance the language skills and cultural knowledge acquired in the prior three academic years of study.  While it is expected that students have been introduced to many of the main concepts of Spanish grammar, we will continue to review and practice these concepts in the context of conversation, writing, and reading.  New concepts introduced in level 4 are the conditional tense, the imperfect and pluperfect subjunctive moods, as well as the study of important pieces in the Latin American Literature. Students will focus on improving their oral and written expression as well as their reading and listening skills.  Spanish will be spoken more extensively in the classroom.  The course revolves around the 2 “C’s” as outlined in the New York State Standards of LOTE (Communication and Cultures).
