Spanish 3 - Kolbe Academy

Spanish 3

This course is designed to teach the student Spanish grammar and to develop the student’s ability to express himself both in writing and speaking the Spanish language.

This course moves the student to a deeper understanding of the Spanish language, through a study of the more complex grammatical structures and nuances of the language.  Students will advance their aural, oral, reading and writing proficiency and continue to develop their thoughts and ideas logically so as to become effective writers and speakers of Spanish.

Students taking this course for Kolbe Core (K) credit are expected to complete daily assignments, periodic exams and quizzes.

Assignment due-dates and grades are established by the parent.  Optionally, a student may be enrolled in the Self-Paced Plus© grading assistance program to receive grading assistance from a Kolbe Academy faculty or staff member on designated assignments in the course.  In this case, parents will still submit final grades to Kolbe for the course, but may choose to incorporate the graded assignments into the student’s overall grade or use the Kolbe-graded assignments to assist in arriving at the student’s final grade.
