This course is a continuation of the beginning level courses that will help the student continue learning the Spanish language. In this course, the student will practice and learn listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through activities that are based on pedagogically proven methods of foreign language instruction. In first semester, students will study daily routines, nature, and volunteering vocabulary. In second semester, the topics of study are the environment, entertainment and neighborhoods. Through these topics students learn to express themselves using an ever-increasing vocabulary, present, past, future and conditional-tense verbs, articles, adjectives and increasingly complex grammatical structures. Grammar is introduced and practiced in innovative and interesting ways with a variety of learning styles in mind. Culture is sprinkled throughout the course to help the learner focus on the Spanish-speaking world and their culture, people, geographical locations and histories. The course is aligned to the national Foreign Language standards.
