Course Description


In the level III course students complete the required language sequence. All of the aforementioned activities continue with review of previously
learned material. Additional verb tenses and grammatical forms are presented, enabling students to express needs, preferences, emotions, and
uncertainty. The culture and literature of other countries where these languages are spoken are included at this level; lengthier reading materials
incorporate cultural topics such as art, music, and literature (short stories and poetry). In addition to passing the course, students are required to
pass the New York State Regents Examination.
