The Spanish II program emphasizes language for communication as it is used in authentic contexts and the functional use of all four skills: listening, reading, speaking, and writing as well as grammar. Audio and video programs as well as film will be used to bring Hispanic culture into the classroom and will help make the study of Spanish a complete cultural and linguistic experience. Topics this year  include using going on a trip, sports and health, shopping, and food. There will be significant focus on the past tense and its application.
