Spanish 2 is focused on building upon the language skills learned in year one. With continued work to build proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing, students are immersed in the language through culturally relevant and authentic materials. Students read short novels in order to enhance their reading proficiency, while also expanding their cultural understanding of the Spanish-speaking world. Classroom activities are designed to push students out of their comfort zone, explore cultures far different from their own, and ultimately nurture an appreciation for the world around them. Grammar plays a role in Spanish 2; however, the main focus of the class is to create opportunities for students to hear, respond to, and interact with the language. Activities are student-centered and communicative in nature, all in an effort to foster a commitment and desire to learn and improve. Students who demonstrate greater proficiency can be placed into Spanish 2 Honors, which is a faster-paced and more immersive environment. Both Spanish 2 and 2 Honors courses invite students to immerse themselves into the Spanish language on the path towards discovering the joy of sustained language learning.
