Foundations II is the second half of a one-year sequence course. Students will build on the language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) needed to communicate at a basic level with native speakers. The emphasis throughout the semester will be on the active use of the target language. As students keep on learning Spanish, they are made more aware of the nature of their own language. Specifically, when concepts of time, space and, specially, “modos” ( a grarmnatical category that shows the speaker’s attitude to his/her own speech) are introduced, students are asked to question their own epistemology and their way to organize and define the world. Language is also presented as a crucial way to communicate and understand the United States better as well as a substantial list ofLatin American countries. Students are introduced to basic tenets of geography, history and traditions of countries from Central and South America through readings, video clips, class discussions, and online activities that enrich both the students’ vocabulary as well as the understanding of the United States in a comparative way.
