In Spanish 2A, students will continue their language learning journey by exploring the Spanish-speaking world. Students will use the language to learn about the cultural practices and products of Spanish-speaking countries while following the journey of fictional Spanish-speaking friends, as they themselves explore and share what they’ve learned about different Spanish-speaking countries. Spanish 2A is the first semester of a two-semester course. The class takes a proficiency-based approach which is informed by current language acquisition research and the ACTFL performance descriptors for novice language learners. A heavy focus is placed on meaningful language use, with grammar being learned implicitly through input and meaning-based activities. The course will incorporate grammatical concepts including: continuing use of present tense conjugations (including reflexive verbs), imperatives, indirect/direct object pronouns, and continuing to use past tense in both preterite and imperfect forms.
