Tarea de Verano AP Español Lenguaje y Cultura

The summer assignment is intended to give students a better idea of what to expect on the AP exam as well as to encourage practice with the language over the summer. Taking this assignment seriously and spacing its requirements out over the summer will benefit you greatly. Do not wait until the week before school starts to begin the assignment.
