What is covered in Spanish 2 and 3?

<p>What grammar is covered throughout Spanish 2 and 3? What grammar should I know before going into Spanish 3? I'm in 8th grade Spanish and the only verb tenses I know are present, preterite, and imperfect but we might learn future. But to test into Spanish 3, what will I need to know?</p>

<p>I’m in Spanish 4 right now and the tenses I knew coming into Spanish 3 were</p>

Informal and Formal Commands
Present Subjunctive
Present Progressive
Past Progressive</p>

<p>And maybe future and conditional. The only difficult one you have to learn is subjunctive and you should be good to go!</p>

<p>Edit: Make sure you can at least write a paragraph of Spanish relatively quickly.</p>

<p>^^ What he said. You should learn all of that in Spanish two.</p>

<p>Spanish is taught.</p>

<p>Remember, if you’re looking to skip ahead in a foreign language, make sure you know more than just grammar and mechanics. If you’re out of Spanish II, you need to be able to write decent paragraphs, you need to be able to listen and understand relatively simple Spanish spoken at a normal pace, and you need to be to (at the very least) carry a basic conversation in Spanish. You should also have a fairly good vocabulary. You should know the 100 most used verbs, the top 150 or 200 would be even better.</p>

<p>Gahh, this thread is just making me feel worse about my Spanish 2 class and how badly I’m going to fail Spanish 3. I can barely do anything listed in here…</p>

<p>Skipping Spanish 2 isn’t exactly something I’d recommend unless you actually speak Spanish… Sure, it’s possible if you don’t but why is it so important to skip? Just because you know verb tenses doesn’t mean that you should skip… As previous posters mentioned there’s allot of vocabulary and fluency/comprehension skills you’re supposed to pick up over time. </p>

<p>Unless you have a legitimate reason to skip- I wouldn’t.</p>

<p>At my school, we only learn the present in spanish 1. In spanish 2 we learn the preterite and imperfect. And then we learn everything else in Spanish 3 except commands.</p>

<p>^ Same here. My Spanish classes focused a lot less on grammar and a lot more on writing, speaking, listening, vocabulary, and culture. At my school, we learned:</p>

<p>Spanish 1: Present
Spanish 2: Preterite, Imperatives/Commands, Present Progressive
Spanish 3: Imperfect, Future, Present Subjunctive</p>

<p>Are you in Spanish 1? Do you speak Spanish at home?</p>
