Subject Overview:

This subject continues to focus on the acquisition of Spanish through a communicative approach to language learning but on a more advanced level than Spanish Beginners 1A. The students engage with more complex texts and a wider range of structures and vocabulary. Students will continue to encounter cultural aspects of the Hispanic world which are regularly presented in the language classes.
