Spanish - Second Year II
Spanish Second Year II is designed for students with conversational Spanish language skills. Coursework focuses on intensive conversation, reading, and writing, as well as practice of selected grammatical structures. Review and use of the Subjunctive mode in the present and past tenses will be introduced using a series of writings and articles about Latin American societies and Hispanic cultures. Another goal is to build upon previous work to strengthen communication skills and fluency in Spanish. This is in preparation for spring where students will be working with complex and abstract ideas in their reading of selected short stories and current news from different sources and in their writing of papers based on specific questions.
Our work will be conducted remotely, using Canvas and Zoom. Students will need access to a computer with a strong internet connection. Students should expect four hours of synchronous (scheduled) time per week.
Completion of Spanish, Second Year I or equivalent required. Contact the instructor for an assessment of proficiency.
