This course continues skill development in listening and speaking, with increased emphasis on reading and writing. Each
thematic unit expands vocabulary and introduces more extensive grammar. Thematic units include food, travel, the home,
animals and sports. Grammar topics include verb tenses and object cases. Students attain more accurate pronunciation and
more fluency in conversation, answer questions to show listening and reading comprehension, and write guided compositions,
exercises, and skits. Active class participation is essential. Because this class emphasizes communication, regular attendance
is required. This class is not intended for native speakers.
