Conversational Spanish II
DescriptionIn Conversational Spanish II we will explore thematic units of vocabulary—words that are part of everyday life: going to visit family and friends, walking through town, ordering food at a restaurant, cooking for family and friends, going to the movies, shopping at the market and the mall, going to the park, and visiting an art museum.
In addition, you will learn how Spanish-speaking people see the world and how they express their hopes and dreams. You will learn about the culture of the Spanish-speaking world, its history, its literature, its music, and its system of values and beliefs.
