Spanish 2 by Alpha and Omega is a comprehensive curriculum for high school.  It is full of engaging activities and practice exercises.  They will build on the skills the student has learned in Spanish 1:  speaking, writing, reading, and listening as they learn to navigate and command the preterite (past), prepositions, the passive voice, subjunctive moods and more vocabulary, cognates and phrases.  There will be a project each semester incorporating new concepts. 

We will observe Hispanic Heritage month with an emphasis on biographies of Hispanic Americans and their contribution to the fabric of America.

Along with the language itself, we will study the history of Spain and Latin America, the cultures of the Spanish and LA people, and the contributions of outstanding Hispanic Americans. Spanish is spoken by over 572 million people worldwide, with 57.9 million of those speakers in the US. Understanding and speaking Spanish opens many doors for students. It stands out on college applications, job applications, and - as a personal benefit - makes travel experiences far more interesting and rewarding.
