Students in Level IV classes expand their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills to the intermediate low/mid/high levels by discussing more advanced topics at the connected sentence and paragraph level. Topics are often taken from themes that will be found on the AP test. Materials are taken directly from the target culture, and consider a variety of real-world topics from science, history, the arts, and other subject areas. Students synthesize their knowledge of advance grammar and work on further developing their academic vocabulary in the target language. Writing assignments are similar to those being done in the native language, with narrative and argument-writing practiced.
The Level IV curricula for all languages are being rewritten this year in order to better align with the AP curricula in Level V. They will be similar to the Level III layout when completed.
