This course builds upon the foundation of Spanish 1. The goals of the class are to help students gain proficiency in the skill of listening, speaking, reading and writing Spanish and to present the Spanish-speaking world and the various cultures it includes. Content covers grammatical structures of the Spanish language including more irregular verbs, reflexive verbs, and past verb tenses. Conjugation and tenses of regular and irregular preterit verbs will be stressed. Students will learn vocabulary to enable them to talk about past events, describe how they look and feel, give instructions, discuss pastimes, occupations, etc.
