Spanish II provides students with an expansion of the basic vocabulary themes and basic grammatical structures in order to facilitate further development of basic language skills. This course is designed to help students build on the basic foundation of the Spanish language previously acquired and expand their vocabulary range. Students are equipped with several important grammar tools essential for communication in all time planes: past, present, and future, as they continue to practice Spanish through speaking, writing, listening, and reading. At the completion of Spanish II, students should be able to produce simple narration in speech and writing, as well as to comprehend and react to longer aural and written cues. Students continue to learn about various aspects of the Spanish culture as they engage in different projects throughout the school year.
