The AP Spanish Language Exam is a 3-4 hour skill-based exam testing your abilities and
proficiency in Spanish. It is not a knowledge-based exam like most other AP exams. You are
“on-stage” in Spanish for over 3 hours, integrating all of your speaking, listening, reading and
writing skills, as well as cultural information acquired during your Spanish studies over the years.
There are sections for multiple choice written, multiple choice audio, written free response and spoken free response.
These sites offer great support for writing in Spanish. Rules for punctuation, capitalization, etc.
are included here along with helpful vocabulary lists. Check them out and use them for extra
practice or explanation.
