Spanish II is a high school foreign language course that builds upon skills and concepts taught in Spanish I, emphasizing communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities.
Course materials are designed to support students as they work to gain a basic proficiency in speaking, listening, reading, and writing Spanish, and in cultural competency.
Upon completion of the course, students should be able to do the following:
- Use Spanish in everyday situations in both oral and written communication.
- Use vocabulary necessary to live in a Spanish-speaking country.
- Demonstrate an understanding of Hispanic countries.
- Listen to and understand passages in Spanish related to various themes.
- Read and understand passages in Spanish related to themes.
- Compare and contrast cultural aspects of Hispanic countries and the United States.
This course gives students practice using the mechanics of the Spanish language, acquaints them with the cultural differences of Hispanic countries, and helps them gain a keen awareness of their own culture.
