Is combining all three years of  Spanish or French into one classroom at the same time a valid way to teach the language?

I was in a Spanish class in college. I was told there weren't enough students to hold three separate levels of Spanish so they combined all three levels and taught Spanish 2 to everyone regardless of level. I always thought this was strange. Is this a legitimate way to teach the language.

    I agree it's strange. How can beginners understand Spanish 2 if they haven't taken Spanish 1? What good does it do those who have already completed Spanish 2 to take it again? In fact calling it "strange" is being charitable.

    It is not ideal, but in those conditions of few students it may be the only way.
