Expose students to the Spanish language through the peoples, practices, products and perspectives the language encompasses by incorporating the “5C’s National Standards for Language”. In this program, students will learn the basics of Spanish and begin building a strong foundation for second language learning. They will understand the importance of learning a second language and relate Spanish to their own lives and the world around them. Students will explore Spanish using real-life experiences through all language competencies. In class, students will be reading, writing, listening and speaking Spanish! Currently students are learning some basics and becoming familiar with their new surroundings. They have also chosen a Spanish name for class, ask them to share it with you!
