Introductory Spanish & Spanish I
6th – 8th Grades
Monday: 10:00 am – 11:30 am
This class will introduce students to the fun of learning a new language! If a high school student plans to take Spanish I but has had very little exposure to the language, or is in middle school and wants to take Spanish I in high school, this class is the perfect choice. In this class students will build a strong foundation in Spanish through basic vocabulary for everyday situations: alphabet, numbers, days and months, weather, food, animals, family, community, and more. Basic Spanish grammar will also be part of this class, like forming plurals, the gender of nouns, the use of articles and pronouns, etc. In addition to basic vocabulary and grammar, students will also participate in simple conversations, learning to ask simple questions and answer them properly.
8th – 12 grades
Monday: 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Learning Spanish is an exciting topic and so relevant for today´s world. In this class students will learn the basic elements of the language and get ready to communicate with Spanish-speaking people here in the US or in any country around the world where Spanish is spoken. The Spanish I program opens with a preliminary unit focusing on basic, high-frequency concepts like names and titles, numbers, greetings, nationalities, school supplies, the alphabet, etc. This is followed by 16 chapters covering topics such as expressing preferences, expressing emotions, personal pronouns, asking questions, describing the weather, sports, transportation, family relationships, animals, daily routines, and more. Each chapter also gives informative, curiosity-piquing glimpses into Hispanic culture. May require a placement test.
