High School Spanish II
High-School Spanish II is designed for students who already have been introduced to the basics of Spanish language, including simple present and past tense verb conjugations. This course will further develop students’ reading, comprehension, listening, writing and speaking skills in Spanish by providing them with more complex grammatical and lexical elements that are essential for communicating in different situations. Additional writing projects, videos, and reading passages will introduce students to the variety of cultures and traditions represented in the Spanish-speaking world.
The course includes 30 hours of live, online instruction per semester. Interactive activities are designed to develop students’ four linguistic abilities in Spanish: reading, writing, listening and speaking. Outside of class, students will be responsible for consistent, daily review of vocabulary as well as the twice weekly homework assignments and assessments.
Taking High School Conversational Spanish - Cultura y Conversación as a supplement to this class is highly recommended for practice with pronunciation and conversation.
Students may be able to take Spanish II as an honors course if the material and course objectives comply with their state's particular requirements. Students who are interested in the ‘Honors’ designation should inform the instructor at the beginning of the course. Some additional assignments may be required. The decision to record the course grade as honors will be made at the end of the course, taking into consideration both the students' performance and state requirements.
"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!"
