This class is designed to meet the requirements for a second-year high school Spanish course.
Using ACTFL standards of communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities, this class will provide a sound grammatical and conversational foundation for the second-year Spanish student while seeking to build connections to home, community, and the world beyond.
This course combines formal grammar and vocabulary instruction with a high emphasis on conversational proficiency, and builds upon the skills learned in Spanish I. Students will continue to grow in their verbal proficiency, reading, and writing. More verb tenses and complex grammar structures are introduced. Although this course is more rigorous than Spanish I, it still maintains a highly interactive and hands-on format.
Mastery of this course will lay a solid foundation for upper-level Spanish courses.
