I am currently an 11th grader in high school, and I would like to take the AP Spanish Language exam this year in order to show to my colleges of choice that I am capable of learning a foreign language. I would like to attend UT Austin, MIT, Stanford, Princeton, Harvard, and Caltech. MIT is my top choice.
I have taken Spanish 1 and Spanish 2 PAP in 9th and 10th grade, and I am not taking Spanish 3 this year due to schedule conflicts. I am beginning to self-study for the AP Spanish Language Exam by watching movies and podcasts in Spanish. I am also planning on reading a book in Spanish. I am also using Duolingo and the Barrons book as sources. I will be practicing my speaking and writing skills as well in Spanish.
I would consider myself to be about average in my Spanish as a non-native.
So, how good are my chances in getting a mega 5 on the AP Spanish Language Exam if I study my Spanish about 1 hour a day?
