Course description

AS Year:
In unit 1, Students will be rewarded for their ability to converse in Spanish in a general topic area that they have chosen in advance.

-Education and employment.

In Unit 2, Students will be required to understand and convey their understanding of Spanish- language texts and recordings.

The unit draws upon the four general topic areas mentioned in Unit 1.
