Spanish II follows Spanish 1. It is a rigorous, year-long class. It offers 1 foreign language credit for High school students. The prerequisites are Spanish 1 or Prior knowledge of Spanish language and Latin or English Grammar.
The class includes advanced grammar, vocabulary, writing, speaking, and listening, along with a cultural component and other skills needed for the high school and beyond students such as study skills, time management, technology usage, and more.
