DP Spanish HL and SL
This is a language acquisition course for students with some previous experience of learning the language. While studying the language, students also explore the culture(s) connected with it. Higher and standard levels are differentiated by the depth of syllabus coverage, the required study or literature at HL, and the level of difficulty and requirements of the assessment tasks and criteria. The course is organized into themes. Three core themes are required: communication and media, global issues, and social relationships. In addition, teachers select two more themes from five options provided. Finally, two works of literature are studied at HL only.
