  1. A good choice for college prep
    review by Kristin on 8/4/2016

    My son debated between this course and the AP course. He chose to forego the AP level because it seemed like this course would be sufficient for his college preparations. Right away a difference was apparent between the 3 previous years of Span and this first semester. There was much less teaching of the subject, and much more using the Spanish skills learned in those previous years. There was much more reading and writing in Spanish as well as cultural study.

To use this course, you'll need a computer with an Internet connection.  Some courses require additional free software programs, which you can download from the Internet.
