Enroll in Spanish 2 with Dolphin STEM Academy
Learning a language is a multi-faceted experience in which you are introduced to a
whole new set of words and ways of expressing yourself with words, along with new
cultures formed by people who have been speaking that language for centuries. The
Spanish-speaking world is vast and rich, spanning Spain in the Iberian Peninsula and
many parts of North, Central, and South America, all with varied ethnic and political
histories and cultures.
In Spanish 2A, you’ll be reintroduced to Spanish in common situations, beginning with
describing classes, school friends, teachers, and school supplies. You’ll discuss
different styles of dressing, housing and neighborhoods, and learn about relationships
between family members and friends, students and teachers, and employees and
employer. You’ll also describe daily personal routines and schedules, household chores
and family responsibilities. Finally, you’ll discuss different types of cuisine, dining
establishments, and dining etiquette. You’ll build on what you learned in Spanish 1B to
communicate by listening, speaking, reading, and writing in Spanish as you internalize
new vocabulary and grammar. You’ll also learn about some regions of the Spanish speaking world where the central characters of each unit are visiting. You will build on
