Spanish 3 builds upon the foundations of Spanish 1 and Spanish 2 with an increased emphasis on speech and language creation and production. Spanish 3 also emphasizes more complex grammar structures as well as increased understanding of global Hispanic culture. Communicative and Cultural competencies are the same as those in Spanish 1 and Spanish 2. The proficiency goals for Spanish 3 are Novice High with students showing tendencies toward and operating a little in the Intermediate Low range. In Spanish 3 students will begin to use grammar structures that involve probability and/or possibility in the future as well as distinguishing the two past tense forms of verbs. This level will show a marked increase in vocabulary learning and usage.
