First Year Spanish II may be the best class for you if you have fairly recent or familial experience with the language and a good grasp of the fundamentals of grammar such as conjugation of verbs and the appropriate use of ser/estar. If you have any questions about whether this class is the best one for you, one of the Spanish language faculty can assist you in finding the right class for your needs.
First Year Spanish II students acquire the skills to understand written and oral language and to express themselves in written and oral language about the following: vacations and other free time activities, months of the year, seasons and weather, clothing and shopping, negotiating a price and buying, colors, daily routines and time expressions, food and meals. Students acquire the following grammatical structures: use of the reflexive mood and preterit tense, including verbs ser and ir in the preterit, demonstrative pronouns, direct and indirect object pronouns, and various idiomatic expressions related to the topics studied.
The course will take place over Zoom. Students must have access to a Zoom-capable computer and decent internet. Our approach will emphasize participation in synchronous (live) sessions; however, if students find themselves unable to participate due to technology, caregiving obligations, economic disruption, health risk, or illness, they can work with faculty to pursue alternate options to earn related credit.
Completion of Spanish I or equivalent required.
