moreSpanish 2 periods: 5, 6, & 7

Description:

Spanish II is a continuing course that assumes prior knowledge or experience with the language at the Spanish I level. This course aims to develop all five language skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing and cultural competence through the use of authentic materials and those designed for Spanish learners. The goal of the course is to help students develop the ability to communicate in Spanish, while at the same time introducing them to the Hispanic culture. A strong emphasis is placed on using the language in practical situations, while also helping students grasp the basics of Spanish grammatical rules, word order, and word formation. Students will increase their levels of proficiency via the everyday use of the target language. By continuous practice of the target language, it is expected that students will be able to spontaneously create with the language, initiate, sustain and close beginner-level exchanges, ask and answer questions and possess the skills necessary of circumlocution when faced with a more difficult communicative task. Additionally, students will be able to meet beginner level practical writing needs by creating compositions, short narratives, and summaries.
