AP® Spanish Language and Culture is a challenging course taught exclusively in Spanish that helps students to improve their proficiency across the three modes of communication: Interpretive, Interpersonal and Presentational. This course is designed to help you prepare for the AP exam, and focuses on the integration of authentic resources including online print, audio, and audiovisual resources, as well as traditional print resources such as literature, essays, and magazine and newspaper articles. Students will communicate using advanced vocabulary and linguistic structures as they build proficiency in all modes of communication toward the advanced level. Class is conducted completely in Spanish and includes frequent writing and integration of skills with a review of grammatical structures, which are troublesome for second-language learners. Advanced organizational and analytical strategies are taught, and students will complete the course feeling better prepared to take the AP exam.
This course is authorized as an Advanced Placement® (AP®) course by the AP Course Audit. The AP Course Audit was created by the College Board to give schools and students the confidence that all AP courses meet or exceed the same clearly articulated curricular expectations of colleges and universities.

completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
A total disappointment. In a course entitled so pompously "Advanced Spanish Language" one could expect an instructor with better pronunciation and more fluid and natural way of speaking, and tasks and tests with less grammatical and spelling errors. And someone could have bothered to correct dozens of misprints that definitely don`t help in a language learning course. I will surely not let any of my students near this course.
