Bienvenidos al español
This year, you will expand on what you can do in Spanish and what you know about the cultures that speak the language.
We'll start with a review of last year, then move forward with new material. We'll continue to build your skills in speaking and writing Spanish, and we'll focus on your ability to understand what you hear and read in the language, too. Click on the appropriate button to see specifics.

What to Expect from Spanish Class
What is Spanish class going to be like? Well, it's going to be challenging, yet fun. A variety of different activities are planned in order to making learning functional and interactive. Be prepared to play, sing, move, act, converse, write, and create - all in Spanish! This is a class where you are encouraged to participate and experiment with the Spanish language. Use the language as much as possible, even if you are at the beginning stages of learning Spanish.
I will be speaking Spanish 90% - 100% of the time. At first, you may not understand, but that's to be expected. Be easy on yourself and don't stress. You'll be surprised at how quickly you catch on to what I'm saying. Remember that part of learning a language is trying to make sense of what you hear and read, then trying to respond by speaking or writing the language.
Learning any new skill, especially another language, can prove to be a challenge, but with a little bit of elbow grease and a lot of heart, I know you will be just fine. If you are interested in having fun and learning a lot, then this class is for you!
