Spanish students practice reading, speaking, and writing stories, interviews, and essays. They develop a rich and useful vocabulary, and learn about the history and culture of the Spanish-speaking world. Classes are conducted mainly in Spanish, and students practice in the Whitford Language Lab to hone their listening and speaking skills.
Students curate and narrate a fashion show using their own wardrobe, create a menu for their own restaurant, and practice their speaking and listening skills ordering food at Viva México. They correspond with pen pals, convey health information in a mock doctor’s office, and plan social events with friends.
More advanced Spanish speakers dig into the imperative and the subjunctive moods, and address real-life scenarios in a near-immersion experience. Spanish 2 Honors is a challenging, fun experience with a lot of hard work and a lot of laughing. Student detectives solve a ‘whodunit’ mystery, interviewing numerous suspects before making an arrest. They write a script, a commercial to sell real estate, and teach one another to make authentic Spanish recipes for a delicious fiesta.
