  • Course Description
    Elective 9-12

    Spanish I will provide students with a general introduction to the Spanish language, and Spanish & Latin American culture. Students will practice listening, speaking, reading and writing in Spanish as they learn vocabulary dealing with school and everyday life. By the end of this course, students will have gained the ability to carry on a simple conversation.

    Spanish II builds upon the knowledge gained in Spanish I. This course will also reinforce listening, speaking, reading, and writing in Spanish. We will focus more on pronunciation, culture, and the past tense.
