Prerequisite: Spanish I or satisfactory placement exam results
Spanish II is an early intermediate course in Spanish that builds upon the basic content of Spanish I. In this course, the linguistic fundamentals of vocabulary and grammar are closely linked to their communicative functions within a cultural framework. The five standards at the core of each unit are: communication, culture, connections, comparisons and communities. Through cultural readings and related activities, students grow in their understanding and appreciation of Spanish and Latin American peoples and cultures. The ultimate goal is to increase communicative competency and strengthen confidence in self-expression. Hence we will gradually be progressing toward total immersion in Spanish.
