Spanish 3 enhances complex communicative skills developed during previous semesters of study. Emphasis is placed on speaking and writing in extended contexts, focusing on presentational and interpersonal communication. Everyday situations, including eating out, travel and vacations, provide students an opportunity to expand their survival skills in Hispanic cultures. Language and critical thinking skills are expanded and deepened through reading, writing and speaking about health care, the environment, job interviews/resumes and relationships. Readings of cultural and literary significance, as well as a unit on art history, provide vehicles for discussion, presentation and composition. Some computer use is required for completing on-line homework assignments.
