Frequently Asked Questions

Open All | Close All

  • What topics will I learn about in Spanish 2?

    Spanish 2 deepens the student’s understanding of the language, allowing the student to engage in more detailed and lengthy conversations than in the first year, and on a greater variety of topics. Students will be able to read and understand non-adapted biblical texts in Spanish, and excerpts of Spanish literature, including poetry. Students will build on their knowledge of grammar as they develop in fluency. Students will also be able to describe a sequence of events in the past using different past tenses, and review the present and future tenses learned in Spanish 1.  

  • How much homework is in Spanish 2?

    We estimate that the course workload will take 5–7 hours per week.

    During a typical week in this course, students will complete the following coursework:

    • 60–90 minutes of live class instruction
    • “Virtual classroom” recordings with guides and online flashcards
    • Several short quizzes or homework exercises
    • Discussion forum posts

    Throughout the year, students will also complete the following tasks:

    • Bible memory verses and refranes (sayings) for each unit
    • Study and translation from the Gospel of Mark
    • Assigned speaking practice within student’s community or family
    • Unit test every 4 weeks
  • What books will I use in Spanish 2?

    The official booklist for Spanish 2 is now available. In the official booklist, you will find information about the editions, book descriptions, and ISBN numbers.

    You can order course materials for competitive prices through our Christian Book Distributors bookstore. Use the Textbook Finder to locate the required resources for your courses. Please note that while most books are available through Christian Book Distributors, some titles are not carried and will need to be purchased elsewhere.

  • Am I ready to take Spanish 2?

    Students taking Spanish 2 should have completed Spanish 1 or an equivalent course. Students should be able to read and write at a 10th grade level.

  • What is a Live Online Class Session in Spanish 2?

    In every HSLDA Academy course, students meet weekly with their instructor and classmates in an online classroom for additional teaching, discussion, Q&A, or group activities. The class sessions are interactive and are conducted using a web meeting software with video, audio, chat, and application sharing capabilities.

    Scheduled, real-time sessions in the online classroom are not the only form of instruction available in a HSLDA Online Academy course, but are offered in addition to lectures or other instructional materials that students are able to access online at their convenience.

    When they register, students will need to select a particular class section and live class meeting time. Additional class sections may be added to the schedule at a later point in the course registration period. Registered students will be notified of any changes to the live session schedule.

  • What if I have a schedule conflict with listed Spanish 2 class times?

    All live class sessions are recorded for later viewing. While it is recommended that students attend each live class session, students can make arrangements to watch the recordings and receive full participation credit.

    Students should contact their instructor at the start of their course to inform the instructor of any foreseen schedule conflicts.
