¡Sigamos aprendiendo! Let's continue learning! This course will further develop students’ reading, listening, writing, and speaking skills in Spanish by providing them with more complex grammatical and lexical elements. Students are introduced to all Spanish verb tenses, read an abridged version of the classic Spanish novel, Lazarillo de Tormes, and write their first brief five-paragraph essay in Spanish.

The course builds students’ reading and writing abilities, and includes more listening and speaking than High School Honors 1. In-class readings and written paragraph assignments reinforce the concepts studied in class. Students also continue to learn about the variety of cultures and traditions represented in the Spanish-speaking world through readings and brief videos.

The course includes 30 hours of live, online instruction per semester. Each week, students are responsible for consistent, daily review of vocabulary as well as twice-weekly homework assignments.  

High School Spanish 2 Honors is designed for students who have completed CLRC Spanish 1 Honors or have already been introduced to the basics of Spanish language and are proficient with the simple present and past tense verb conjugations.

Students are encouraged to take the National Spanish Exam and are provided with practice questions and support to prepare for the exam.

High School Spanish 2 is available as an honors level course. Additional assignments are required which include more advanced reading, and more in-depth and complex grammatical topics.

Taking Conversational Spanish as a supplement to this class is highly recommended for practice with pronunciation and conversation.

High school students may be awarded 1 Language credit upon completion of this course.

"Thank you so much Mrs Kerrigan! My son has really enjoyed your classes and I attribute to you his appetite for learning. Thank you for making your classes enjoyable and motivating. I also wanted to let you know that he took a Spanish Placement test at Texas A&M and he tested out of both Spanish 101 & 102. He is eligible to take Spanish 201! Thank you for preparing him!"
