332 Spanish II

2 semesters, 1 credit

Open to sophomores, juniors and seniors

Prerequisite: Minimum grade of “C” in 331 Spanish I and approval of teacher

Spanish II is a continuation of immersion in the Spanish language through a blend of traditional grammar methods and TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling). Students acquire a second language much like they acquire their first – by hearing speech in context. The stories acted out in class include various verb tenses and complex grammatical structures. Students will also read and discuss easy novels in Spanish. Emphasis is placed on listening, speaking, reading, and writing Spanish. iPad and internet access after school will be necessary. Students who do not maintain a “B” grade at the end of the second semester of Spanish II may not take the next level course without teacher approval. They may take Spanish II again to improve their grade to move on to the next level course, but they will receive credit for the course only once.
