I have been a Consultant for AP Spanish Language & Culture and AP Spanish Literature & Culture for 15 years; and I have taught both courses for over 23 years. During that time, I have experienced a need for vocabulary and grammar review, specifically related to the readings, prior to students doing the reading and multiple choice questions. These preliminary exercises, “Ejercicios preliminares de vocabulario y gramática”, are intended specifically to be used with the textbook: AP* Spanish Language and Culture Exam Preparation, by Jorge Frisancho, María T. Redmon y Marta Lucía Trestrepo Bravo, Vista Higher Learning, 2014.
They are preliminary exercises that review vocabulary and grammar that are used in the readings found in the textbook. These preliminary exercises are in a Power Point format, so that teachers can do the review with students with or without the student copy; or they can be assigned individually. These vocabulary and grammar exercises can also be used as a review, without using the book.
By reviewing the vocabulary and grammar that students will see in the readings, they will be able to understand the readings better, and also answer the multiple-choice questions with greater success.
