Spanish III relies heavily on what was taught in Spanish I and II, since a good foundation is imperative for success in this class. Students are expected to be proficient in the present and past tenses by the time they get to Spanish III. This course uses songs, poetry, short stories, a wide series, movies, news video clips, newspaper articles, novels, skits, grammar worksheets, and conversation in class to build a vocabulary that is complex and goes beyond simple sentence formation. We learn to describe people in both the present and past in great detail. The future is introduced as well as many compound tenses. Some of the themes that are discussed in the textbook En Español include fashion, politics, and the environment. The last month of the class is dedicated to reading a novel completely in Spanish and discussing the book entirely in the target language.
