Spanish IAB is designed to be a five-week condensed year-long academic course. The student will be immersed in Spanish five days per week for five hours per day and, upon successful completion of the course, the student will receive ten credits. Attendance is required for all five weeks.
Spanish IAB will develop the language skills necessary to build a solid foundation for Spanish II AB. The student will learn to develop a high degree of competence in language skills through a variety of instructional materials, including: authentic audio and/or video recordings designed to advance the student's listening abilities; authentic written texts; and other non-technical writings designed to strengthen the student's reading, writing and speaking skills. The student will prepare and deliver conversation dialogues, and participate in several class projects.
