These AP Spanish Summer Homework assignments accomplish three things: They keep students exposed to Spanish during summer months or semester breaks, provide preparatory practice for each section of the AP Spanish Language and Culture Exam (except the Conversación simulada), and provide training wheels in the form of vocabulary and sheltered language for the reading and audio sources. They will prepare students for the rigor of AP Spanish without overwhelming them. They are meant for Spanish Four and advanced Spanish Three students who are planning to take AP Spanish after summer or after the current semester.
Every summer, my principal asks me to submit my summer homework for future AP Spanish students, and every summer I have to scramble. No more scrambling!
