In Spanish III, students continue to develop their communicative and cultural competence by interacting orally and in writing with other Spanish speakers, understanding oral and written messages in the language, and making oral and written presentations in Spanish. They communicate on a variety of topics at a level commensurate with their study, using more complex structures in the language and moving from concrete to more abstract concepts in a variety of time frames. They comprehend the main ideas of authentic materials that they listen to and read and are able to identify significant details when the topics are familiar. Students develop the ability to sustain a conversation in Spanish about topics that include historical and contemporary events and issues. Emphasis continues to be placed on use of Spanish in the classroom as exclusively as possible, as well as on use of authentic materials to learn about the Spanish language and culture.
