Students will experience the language, vocabulary, grammar, and culture of Spanish speaking countries. Basic reading and writing will be mastered with a strong emphasis on communication.

Book: Juntos Dos, ISBN# 0130508489. Order through Amazon or other used book websites. Students will read a novel called Mi Propio Auto during the second semester.  This should be ordered through www.tprsbooks.com since the old version of the book has the same ISBN as the new version, and it is very important to have the correct version.  If you order it used, or buy it from a former student, be sure to get the version with the blue and white cover instead of the yellow cover since there are major differences between the 2 versions.  Use SKU: 0-929724-74-7

Students will continue learning Spanish grammar, vocabulary, culture, and conversation at a more advanced level, preparing them for Spanish III or college Spanish, and helping them to become even more confident in their ability to speak, read, and write in another language. Although the textbook will be our foundation, additional authentic resources and comprehensible input (including a short Spanish novel) will be incorporated in order to encourage as much language acquisition as possible.  Students will receive daily written and online homework assignments to reinforce the oral concepts we are learning in class, with a test approximately every 4-5 weeks.
