Spanish will be taught this year by Mrs. Irvin.
Spanish I is a beginning foreign language class. Students will learn a variety of vocabulary and use it in simple conversational situations. There is a lot of oral practice in this course. It is extremely important for students to practice and review outside of class as well.
We will also cover geography in relation to the Spanish-speaking countries. In addition we will touch on some of the unique aspects of culture in these areas.
Students select and use a Spanish first name. Daily requirements are to bring a pencil, three ring binder, paper, and a novel or other homework.
This course is a continuation of Spanish I. We spend the first few weeks reviewing material from the first year class. Students are expected to be able to progress from there and add new concepts, but still be able to use the old material as well. Less English will be used in instruction and ideally by students as well.
