Students continue their study of the Spanish language by progressing to the next level of middle school Spanish with instruction equivalent to that found in the second semester of high school Spanish I. Students focus on listening, speaking, reading and writing. Each unit consists of a new vocabulary theme and grammar concept, reading and listening comprehension activities, speaking and writing activities, multimedia cultural presentations, and interactive activities and practices to reinforce vocabulary and grammar. There is a strong emphasis on providing context and conversational examples for the language concepts presented in each unit. Students will be actively engaged in their own language learning, become familiar with common vocabulary terms and phrases, comprehend a wide range of grammar patterns, participate in simple conversations and analyze and compare cultural practices and perspectives of various Spanish-speaking countries. Students will also take frequent assessments where their language progression can be monitored.
