Syllabus Description: 

UC Scout World Languages are based on the themes of Global Challenges, Beauty and Aesthetics, Families and Communities, Personal and Public Identities, Contemporary Life and Science and Technology. UC Scout World Languages are standards and proficiency based incorporating the 5 C’s of Language Acquisition set forth by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages: Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities. Our Spanish courses can be used to supplement face-to-face courses and are “a-g” approved.

This course includes conversation development on topics such as historical and cultural products, challenges facing the global community, making plans for the future, international travel, expressing preferences, visiting historical sites, driving, appropriate work behavior, the cinema, and studying the work of artists. Students will continue to learn grammar concepts such as expressing preferences and dislikes, irregular verbs, the subjunctive, using verbs as nouns, the passive voice, demonstrative adjectives, relative clauses, the narrative past, the past perfect, and the superlative. This class is conducted in Spanish.
