¡Bienvenidos! Welcome to Spanish 1!
This is a year long class that meets every other school day. Each class period is 80 minutes long.
During our time together, you will learn basic Spanish vocabulary, grammar, and culture. You will build fundamental communication skills like listening, speaking, reading, and writing in a new language.
We will use a wide variety of methods to practice the material, from traditional textbook activities to technology use, from quiet independent work to cheering, chanting, singing, and dancing, from individual thought to pair and group collaboration. And, of course, there will be daily work, presentations, projects, and assessments.
Through the course of the year, you should progress from using the few words you learned from Dora or Sesame Street to using full sentences that describe who you are, your school life, shopping, and a trip to the cafe with friends after school.
