Spanish 2 Course Description

  • Students continue to expand their arena of conversation to include animals/farm, daily routines, childhood, geography, food, cities and towns, clothing, shopping, stores, transportation, and travel. Students can talk about their daily routines and learn to talk about past activities.  Students can describe and compare, provide and obtain specific information, express likes and dislikes and express needs.  Students can listen to or read and understand, write or tell a simple story in the past tense. Proficiency at this level is attained by developing the modes of communication (interpersonal, presentational and interpretive) within the thematic contexts. In addition, there is a strong focus on language connections and comparisons in order to interact with cultural competence and to become a lifelong language learner. It is expected that students will attain a novice mid/high proficiency level at the end of the course.
