Description

Spanish 102 is a second-semester course intended for students that have completed Spanish 101. In this course, students will abide by the flipped-classroom model, which consists of a student-centered classroom and implies that all instruction is delivered in the foreign language using a 4-skills approach. Students will complete grammar and vocabulary exercises through an online textbook platform at home so that they can use the class session to privilege interaction with their classmates focusing on meaningful, real-life situations and interactions, as well as heighten their cross-cultural awareness. 

Assessment is based on attendance, course contribution, online homework, speaking and writing assignments, chapter exams, and a final examination.  

After successfully completing Spanish 102, students will be able to:

  • talk about their daily routine
  • describe houses and furnishings
  • talk about chores
  • identify foods and drinks
  • use common expressions at the dinner table
  • identify place settings
  • order food at a restaurant and comment on food
  • talk about health and nutrition
  • ask for and give advice, make generalizations and express opinions
  • talk about clothes, colors, and styles
  • point out people and things
  • express likes and dislikes
  • practice how to make purchases in a clothing store
  • identify souvenirs and what they are made of
  • learn how to bargain in a market
  • talk about holiday customs, talk about sporting, cultural, and artistic events
  • extend, accept, and decline invitations
  • explore myths and legends
  • react to stories that others tell
  • describe past events and actions in a variety of contexts using the preterit and imperfect tenses.

Students will also gain an appreciation of the cultures present in the Hispanic world and they will use critical thinking skills to talk about the differences and similarities among the world’s cultural traditions and social organizations.
