AP Spanish Language Exam Info

Although this class contains content that will increase your chances of success on the AP Spanish Language Exam, we do not prepare for the exam format during class time. Therefore, if you are interested in taking the exam, you must prepare outside of class. I have compiled a list of resources to help you. I would listen to the podcasts daily and take notes. Furthermore, I recommend that you purchase materials that contain current test format examples. As I have stated in class, it is my recommendation that you also pursue the placement exam provided by the university you are going to attend. These exams are free and generally much easier.

The AP Exam requires students to be able to read, write, listen, speak, and synthesize/analyze information that is presented in Spanish and use the language to answer questions, write an informal (email) and formal (essay) composition, respond appropriately to a phone message in a recording, and present a two-minute recorded oral presentation. Each student must possess a large vocabulary in Spanish, as well as have the reading/writing/speaking/listening skills necessary to interpret cultural information that is presented in Spanish in order to be successful on the AP Exam. Through class readings, oral presentations, grammar reviews, essays and oral practice each student will be exposed to activities that will appear on the AP Exam.
