The Hispanic Culture and Spanish Language II

Instructor: Louis Blount

Saturdays, 8am-5pm | March 28; April 11, 25; May 2, 9

This intense course is designed for school personnel in D.C. Public Schools to converse in Spanish beyond the basic level with Hispanic students and parents. Emphasis will be on acquiring an advanced understanding of the Spanish language through grammatical structures used in Spanish conversation, mastering listening concepts for communicating with native Spanish speakers, writing basic communicative texts for parents, and reading in the target language to communicate educational matters to parents. Mastery of these advanced skills and learned vocabulary will be immediately used in communicating with Spanish-speaking members of school communities. In addition, participants will have an appreciation of important cultural and social events in the Hispanic cultures in the local community.

Prerequisite: Hispanic Culture and Spanish Language I or Instructor’s permission

Participants may earn 45 PLU’s or 3 graduate credits from Trinity University.
