Spanish 2 builds on the language skills learned in Spanish 1. In this course, students will increase their skills by completing listening, speaking, reading and writing activities based on pedagogically proven methods of foreign language instruction. The course is aligned to the national Foreign Language standards.
In the first semester, students will study vocabularies for travel, health, routine and shopping. In the second semester, they study vocabularies relevant to communities, food, movies and relationships. Students will learn to express themselves using an ever-increasing vocabulary, present and past tense verbs, articles, adjectives and increasingly complex grammatical structures.
Spanish grammar is presented in innovative and interesting ways with a variety of learning styles in mind. Throughout the course, students will also learn about the culture, history and geography of the Spanish-speaking world.
- Listening – Students will understand the main idea and supporting details of spoken language that incorporates familiar vocabulary and structures and respond appropriately.
- Reading – Students will understand selected written materials on various topics.
- Speaking – Students will apply knowledge of Spanish pronunciation and intonation patterns in various situations.
- Writing – Students will respond to statements or questions in Spanish; write compositions and conversations on selected topics, which incorporate description, detail and accurate grammatical structures.
