Spanish 2 introduces students to the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world and helps them develop a strong foundation in the language. This course is designed for students who have taken Spanish 1 or have some limited proficiency in the Spanish language at the novice mid level (ACTFL). With an emphasis on Hispanic culture, students will develop their communicative skills in Spanish across the four areas of listening, reading, writing, and speaking. Additionally, students will learn and reflect on how to communicate effectively with people from Spanish-speaking cultures. Throughout the course, emphasis will be placed on engaging in conversation using communicative language teaching as the approach. This will be accomplished through task-based activities, whole class and small group discussions, and interactive activities that include videos, songs, and games.
