Spanish II

Description

In this intermediate-level course students will continue to develop the vocabulary, grammar, and cultural concepts introduced in Spanish I. The main objective in this course is for students to acquire a more fluent level of communication in Spanish. This will allow them to understand native speakers of Spanish and learn to make themselves understood. This class will be conducted in Spanish most of the time. All instructions, exercises, and comments will be presented first in Spanish and later in English (although students may request additional information in English at any time).
