Spanish I incorporates grammar and vocabulary reviews of basic information in order to continue higher-level lessons on solid foundations. An emphasis will be made to include new material in the context of sentences and dialogues. Extensive vocabulary and grammar topics, including subjunctive tense and imperative tense, as well as object pronouns in conjunction with these tenses, will be part of higher-level material. All material will be practiced orally and/or in writing. Positive class contributions, especially oral participation, will receive a test score grade. The text will serve as a supplementary source of enrichment and/or extra credit.

Spanish II emphasizes computer-generated vocabulary building and an addition of six verb tenses incorporating both regular and irregular verbs in context after vocabulary and grammar reviews. A new emphasis will be given to survival-type situations in a Spanish-speaking country. All material is practiced thoroughly in class. Oral class participation is emphasized.
