This course builds on the grammatical concepts and vocabulary that students mastered while completing the Spanish I and II course. Spanish III fully aligns with national ACTFL standards. Students learn increasingly complex grammatical constructions, such as present, imperfect, perfect, and future tenses; reflexive and modal verbs; prepositions; conjunctions; relative pronouns; and adjective endings.
Unit themes in this two-semester course include chores, directions, feelings, future plans and travel, geography, countries and nationalities, health, household items, measurements, occupations, and personal history. Unit activities blend different forms of communication and culture.
