- Instructor: Mrs. Morales
Students will be introduced to Spanish culture and language. Students will be expected to speak in the target language, and almost all instruction will take place in the target language, at a very basic level. Students will learn fundamental grammar items such as the present tense of regular and irregular verbs, basic adjectives, indefinite and definite articles, and basic vocabulary including colors, numbers, weather, and the family.
Students will deepen their grammatical and cultural knowledge of French, Italian, or Spanish. Students will learn how to discuss past and future events. More speaking is expected in this second, intermediate year of language study.
Much of third year is a review of first and second year grammatical items. In addition to past grammar and vocabulary, the subjunctive and conditional tenses are studied. Students will sit for the LOTE exams prepared by the New York City Department of Education. The exams will evaluate reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills.
