Spanish II – GROUP 1
After beginning with a review, Spanish II continues to build upon the concepts learned in Spanish I. The indicative (like the preterite, imperfect and future), imperative and subjunctive moods will be explored. Pronouns, adjectives, affirmative/negative words, comparatives/superlatives, por/para and more vocabulary will also be studied. Students will continue to explore the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. Emphasis will be placed on speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
This will be a very interactive class. Students will be expected to come to class prepared with a headset microphone and ready to participate. Besides speaking, a variety of activities will be used during class to engage students. Bible Scripture recitation will be part of our weekly classes. Weekly homework, including tests, will be assigned.
Placement test and answer key for Spanish II are here.
