Folder Course Objectives Building upon the foundation of Spanish I and II, Spanish III will introduce students to more complex grammatical concepts. Students will also be challenged to put the grammar concepts and vocabulary that we learn in class into use. Spanish III will continue to develop students’ listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. Going beyond basic comprehension and communication, students will be expected analyze sources in greater detail, synthesize their own opinions and make inferences based on the sources. The study of grammar and vocabulary will go hand in hand with the study of the cultures, histories, and contemporary situations of various Spanish speaking countries. Course Syllabus Chapter 1.
