Grammar Reteaching Tutorials
If you are ever having trouble with a specific area of grammar, obviously you should feel free to email me, call me, or ask me any questions you may have in class. However, we all learn differently. Occasionally, you may find that you're just not understanding it as well as you'd like the way your book or I have explained it to you.
SAT II Spanish Tests
There are two Spanish Subject Tests: Spanish ($29) and Spanish with Listening ($40). Both tests evaluate your reading ability in Spanish. The Spanish Test with Listening also measures your ability to understand spoken Spanish, in addition to your reading ability. Find out more about taking the listening tests ($40).
Three to four years of Spanish language study in high school (or two years of strong preparation), or the equivalent.
When should you take the Spanish test?
There are a few factors to consider while you're deciding when to take the test.
You should have at least two years of strong preparation in the language, but the more the better. So, if you're continuing in high school Spanish next semester/year, then wait to take the test.
You should be in a Spanish class when you take the test. You're likely not to do as well if you take the test after you haven't been in a Spanish class for several months.
For seniors studying Spanish: if Spanish is a strong subject for you, be sure it's one of the SAT Subject Tests you take in time for your colleges to see your score. If you're only taking it for placement purposes, and not as part of your application for admission, wait until you're as far along in your course as possible.
If you want to take the Spanish with Listening test, remember that it's only given in November (don't forget to bring a portable CD player with earphones!).
Spanish commands word list, games, hangman, and quizzes.
