 COURSE UPDATES 

PRE-AP SPANISH 

We've been reviewing past verb tenses in Pre-AP Spanish, while also beginning to expand vocabulary.  We've also undertaken an introduction to Latin America (geography, countries, & Pre-Columbian history).  Students have also been working on "Duolingo" (an online, interactive language program) and are about to start watching the telenovela, "El cuerpo del deseo" (the trailer is at the bottom of the page).  Coming up soon will be our unit on fables.


SPANISH V (Formerly "Advanced Conversation") 

We've been reviewing past verb tenses in Pre-AP Spanish, while also beginning to expand vocabulary.  We've also undertaken an introduction to Latin America (geography, countries, & Pre-Columbian history).  Students have also been working on "Duolingo" (an online, interactive language program) and are about to start watching the online series, "Mi vida loca" (the trailer is at the bottom of the page).  Coming up soon will be our unit on fables.



A.P. SPANISH 
Students are well into their first chapter in AP Spanish, which deals with immigration and personal identity, as it relates to culture.  We've also started an intensive review of verb tenses and expanding vocabulary.  Of course, the students have been speaking a lot of Spanish in class and enjoying our telenovela for this year, "El cuerpo del deseo" (the trailer is at the bottom of this page).
