As we follow the ACTFL standards, each level is a progression and continuation of the next.
 
Students will focus on writing, reading, listening, and speaking skills in Spanish. We will also investigate cultures where Spanish is the dominant language through a variety of mediums. By the end of this course, you will appreciate the importance of Spanish in both our local and global societies.
 
Students should enjoy communicating in Spanish and not be afraid to make mistakes. Students MUST come to class daily for the sole purpose of improving their Spanish skills. At this level of study, much of the learning comes from the students’ own desire and willingness to speak Spanish in and out of class. This is an academically rigorous class requiring dedication and enthusiasm.
 
Specifically, students will be able to:
  • recognize keywords and phrases and express their own meaning in a basic way.
  • create simple sentences and some strings of sentences in the present and past tenses.
  • be understood by those accustomed to interacting with language learners.
  • identify practices and perspectives of the different Spanish-speaking countries.
