My Spanish Courses at Bound Brook High School for the 2015-2016 school year:
 
Spanish I CP:
In Spanish 1, students learn basic grammar such as verb conjugation and adjective agreement and practice the basic skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing in the present tense, with an emphasis upon correct oral and written expression and oral comprehension. Students are also introduced to various aspects of Hispanic culture in Latin American countries and in Spain as illustrated in the text and through videos and presentations, which may include historical, social and cultural topics.

*NJ Minimum Graduation Requirements state that students must take one year (5 credits) of a World Language*  

Spanish II CP:
In Spanish 2, students build on the grammar and skills acquired in Spanish 1. Students will learn more complex grammar, such as commands, reflexive verbs, and the past tense; and practice the basic skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing with an emphasis upon correct oral and written expression and oral comprehension, particularly in the past tense. Students also examine aspects of Hispanic culture in Latin American countries and in Spain as illustrated in the text and through videos and presentations, which may include historical, social and cultural topics.

*Many four year colleges require two years or more of a World Language for admission*

Spanish III CP:
This course is designed for students to build on the vocabulary and grammar skills acquired in Spanish I and II.  Through the use of audio, video, and communicative activities, and various online and technology resources, students will learn vocabulary to discuss art, leisure activities, jobs and careers, and the history of Spain and Latin America.  Grammar topics include the present perfect and the subjunctive.  Students will begin to analyze and synthesize information in the target language to create presentations, hold conversations, and write essays.
