Spanish 1B

Course Description:

In Spanish 1B, you'll be introduced to several common situations in which people describe how to earn, save, and manage money, modes of urban transportation, various seasons and the associated weather conditions, food, clothes, and activities. You’ll also describe various art forms, plays, concerts, and movies. You’ll discuss health and well-being and travel and tourism. You'll build on what you learned in the Spanish 1B course to communicate by listening, speaking, reading, and writing in Spanish as you internalize new vocabulary and grammar. You'll also learn about some regions of the Spanish-speaking world where the central characters of each unit are visiting. You will build on this semester's work as you advance in your Spanish studies: everything that you learn about a language and the cultures in which it is spoken will serve as a foundation for further learning.
