These skills and the cultural perspectives are addressed through exploration of global issues, social relations and introduction to literature and film. This course will be primarily conducted in the target language and students are encouraged to use the language for communication. Dual credit may be obtained from the Maricopa Community College system for this program at high schools offering this option.
