¡Bienvenidos a la clase de Señora Llavona!
The Spanish 2 language course focuses on the continued development of communicative competence in Spanish and understanding of the culture(s) of the people who speak Spanish. It assumes that the students have successfully completed a Level I course or are at a Novice-Mid level of proficiency.
Students begin to show a greater level of accuracy when using basic language structures, and they are exposed to more complex features of the Spanish language. They continue to focus on communicating about their immediate world and daily life activities, read material on familiar topics, and write short, directed compositions. The major means of communication between students and instructors will be in the target language.

The goal of a modern language class is to teach students strategies to be an effective communicator. Therefore, students will be assessed through the following modalities: Interpersonal (speaking/writing), Interpretive (print/audio), and Presentational.
Summative Assessments (Tests/Projects)= 70%
Checks on Learning (Quizzes: 20% and Required practice/ TOTD/ etc.: 10%)= 30%
Google Classroom is the main form of communication for all my classes. Announcements, reminders, general information, course materials, and assignments are posted on a regular basis.
If a student needs assistance, has any questions or concerns, please send me a message in Google Classroom or an e-mail at [email protected]. I normally respond within 24 hours or less during the school week.
*Parent(s)/Guardian(s), if you would like to receive weekly Google Classroom summaries for your student, e-mail me the e-mail address you would like me to use. Your e-mail address will be added to your student's specific Google Classroom to receive communication about announcements and assignments posted.
