Spanish 4 uses speaking, reading and writing and listening to continue learning more advanced grammar structures and discussion topics. Students are able to use several tenses as they ask and respond to questions about themselves and others. Students communicate about going camping, going to the beach, volunteering and social work, discussing environmental concerns and social awareness and talking about careers. Cultural connections are made throughout the course. Class participation is an integral part of language learning and is required. Spanish 4 is of great value to students who will take a college-level foreign language course. This course may be a College-in-High-School (CHS) course offered through an affiliation with a local college/university for optional college credit.
