    No. Mine's not like that at all. (French)

    My school finishes grammar in Spanish 4, we have Spanish 1,2,3,4,5,AP Language, AP Literature and 6 for the kids not in AP. French is different.

    for French, we're memorizing useless crap like capitals of African countries

    Yes, except it's even further behind and for assessment, all we do is worksheets and tests. The class is composed almost entirely of busywork. It's awful.

    Masterus, AP Language is the sixth level course for your school? At most schools it's fourth.

    We're basicly fluent by AP. The bad thing is that if I went to another school, I'd be doing AP Spanish Literature this year instead of Spanish 5H. I just moved into AP Spanish Language though.

    Oh, I see.

    the french curriculum is sort of similar to the one posted especially the grammar part. as for the others, we really don't devote too much time on that. it's either grammar revisions or french literature.

    it may have something to do with being in a french immersion school (half of my classes are in french)...

    At my school, the level 4 and five course, would be French III at my school. As far as Latin, Latin I and II would be Latin I at my school.

    This thread is being resurrected from the abyss.

    My regular non-AP non-honors Spanish curriculum is more advanced than that.

    At my school, AP Language is the fifth. It's weird, we have a decelarated curriculum with no way to opt out besides test-outs.
  • JakorJakor Registered User Posts: 914 Member
    Spanish is.

    At our school, AP Spanish is usually taken after sixth year, though you have an option to take it after fifth. But our curriculum is different, we learned subjunctive etc. in third year and mastered it in fourth. We definitely don't cover prayer as a topic, being a public school and all. :) And we usually don't look specifically at vocab, we just read a lot of books and stories and pick up vocab on our own.
