Spanish 3, Semester A

0.5 Unit
World Languages
Grades: 9, 10, 11, 12

Learning a language is a multi-faceted experience in which you are introduced to a whole new set of words and ways of expressing yourself with words, along with new cultures formed by people who have been speaking that language for centuries. The Spanish-speaking world is vast and rich, spanning Spain in the Iberian Peninsula and many parts of North, Central, and South America, all with varied ethnic and political histories and cultures.
In Spanish 3A, you’ll be reintroduced to Spanish in common situations, beginning with various daily routines, describing friends and family, childhood memories and activities, and childhood hopes and aspirations. YouÕll discuss and describe art, such as paintings and sculptures, and literature, such as novels and novellas, and give reactions and form opinions about art and literature. YouÕll also understand the process of selecting and applying to a university, aspirations at the university, and dealing with leaving home and moving into a dormitory. Further, you will describe university life and expectations from the university experience. YouÕll explore the dynamics and challenges of multiethnic and developing societies, environmental and social issues, causes and possible resolutions, and learning about unfamiliar countries using technology. Finally, youÕll discuss current events reported in the media, different types of classified and other types of advertisement in the media (both print and online), the sections and supplements of a newspaper or magazine, and various jobs available in the media.
You’ll build on what you learned in Spanish 2 to communicate by listening, speaking, reading, and writing in Spanish as you internalize new vocabulary and grammar. You’ll also learn about some regions of the Spanish-speaking world where the central characters of each unit are visiting. You will build on this semester’s work as you advance in your Spanish studies: everything that you learn about a language and the cultures in which it is spoken will serve as a foundation for further learning.
