Spanish 2/ ESOL

¡Saludos! This is an introductory course to both the Spanish language and the cultures where the Spanish language is spoken. This course is modeled on the communicative approach where emphasis is placed on communicating through meaning-bearing input and structured output rather than repetition and rote memorization. While it is still important for you to study vocabulary and produce the language, our approach will be directed toward the exploration and deeper understanding of the language and the culture.  

The objectives of this course are to develop basic communicative skills in Spanish as a second language and to develop knowledge and understanding about the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. 

The objective for ESOL will be to develop reading, writing, and speaking skills in English as a second language. We will work on developing knowledge of grammar and communication in the course and helping students meet their goals in their other courses.
