Middle School Spanish: Students will continue to focus on the four key areas of language study: Listening, speaking, reading, and writing. There will be a strong emphasis on context and conversations. This class is geared to students who have completed Intro to Spanish.
Spanish 1: This course is geared toward students with good English and memorization skills who have some knowledge of the Spanish language. Students will learn advanced vocabulary and grammar styles. Peer conversations and cultural comparisons will be a regular part of this class.
Spanish 2: Spanish 2 is big step up in level and pace. Students will learn with increasing complexity how the language works and will soon be able to understand, read, write and speak in complex, descriptive, and interesting sentences. They will be able to write more complex paragraphs using vocabulary and grammar learned in each quarter. In regular class sessions students will do small group activities, class projects and presentations. We will also read some classic children’s books in Spanish. By the middle of the semester they are expected to be able ask more questions in Spanish than in English. Students will be participating in special projects related to culture or grammatical topics. Each student will be assigned to research and make or create presentations on a particular lesson/culture.
