Español Tres is a year-long course, which emphasizes critical thinking, writing, vocabulary development, listening to different Spanish dialects, and speaking in an academic register. The readings and classroom discussions will take students through an exploration of the Hispanic world in the American continent and Europe. Espanol Tres students will continue learning the principles of Spanish orthography to bring up areas of grammar that are known to be particularly difficult for Hispanic bilinguals and to raise awareness of textual organization and composition. Students write different types of essays for a variety of audiences and purposes. Students will make oral presentations so that they can practice their spoken language.
