¡Bienvenidos! Welcome to Spanish 2!
This is a year long class that meets every other school day. Each class period is 80 minutes long.
This class is a continuation of Spanish 1. During our time together, you will learn more Spanish vocabulary, grammar, and culture. You will continue building fundamental communication skills like listening, speaking, reading, and writing in in the target language.
We will still use a wide variety of methods to practice the material, from traditional textbook activities to technology use, from quiet independent work to singing and dancing, from individual thought to pair and group collaboration. And, of course, there will be daily work, presentations, projects, and assessments.
Through the course of the year, you should progress from using simple sentences to more complex structures. You should be able to discuss your family, home, things you have to do, sports, health, feelings, the doctor's office, the weather, summer and winter vacations, and cultural events. To do this, you will need to know grammar concepts like stemchanging verbs, ser vs.estar, direct and indirect object pronouns, tener idioms, and the simple regular past tense.
