Spanish I & II
A one year course, Spanish 1-2 introduces the student to the Hispanic world, its language, its people and its culture. Emphasis is placed on language development that integrates the skills of listening, speaking, writing and reading. Students will learn to give and respond to oral directions and commands, understand and use forms of address and courtesy, ask and answer simple questions, discuss their lives concerning interests, needs, and daily routines, and function in practical situation using the target language. To support this communication, students will study vocabulary, grammar and usage in both oral and written forms. In doing so, students will be able to read isolated words and phrases in a situational context, comprehend brief written direction and information, and read short narrative texts using the Spanish language.
