Fourth-year Spanish expands on the foundation of Spanish grammar and vocabulary that students acquired in the first three courses. As with all the earlier offerings, this culminating-level Spanish language course conforms to the standards of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). Students continue to sharpen their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills while also learning to express themselves on topics relevant to Spanish culture. The two-semester course is divided into ten units whose themes include people, achievements, wishes and desires, activities, celebrations, possibilities, the past, the arts, current events, and wrap up and review.

Designed to be more rigorous, in this Spanish 4 course, students are taught not only to master Spanish grammar but how to apply their knowledge through conversation in everyday life. Our program satisfies the high school foreign language requirement for college admissions and prepares students for a future of speaking Spanish as a second language!
