PowerSpeaK12 Spanish 2 Grade 6-8

PowerSpeak

Spanish 2

Prerequisites: Middle School Spanish 1, or equivalent

Course Length: Each semester course is 90 lessons. Each lesson is about 30-45 minutes.

Course Description: The solid basis acquired in Middle School Spanish 1 is expanded through appealing practice and instruction in the form of games and stories, with instruction equivalent to that found in the second semester of high school Spanish I. These activities guide children to express more complex thoughts and understand native language from a variety of culturally authentic sources. Children increase skills in reading, listening comprehension, and vocabulary as they learn sentence patterns and advanced phrases. They learn to identify objects from descriptions, translate to and from Spanish, create stories, and understand and give directions. Vocabulary emphasizes geography, math, plants, animals, and directions, conveyed through increasingly complex poems, stories, and ditties. Grammar topics include object pronouns with finite and infinite verbs, past- and present-tense verbs, action verbs, imperfect tense, participle verb endings, indicative and subjunctive verb forms, and dependent verb clauses. Cultural topics expand to include higher-level content, with special emphasis on the literary and social treasures of Spanish-speaking countries.
