Credit: 10 Credits
This is an introductory course of the Spanish language. Students will learn how to read, write, and communicate at a beginning level. Students will also be exposed to the cultural differences and similarities of Latin countries in comparison with their own. Students learn grammar and vocabulary based on themes such as friendship, school, sports and leisure activities, food, family, and clothing. Students will perform short dialogues, play vocabulary games, read Spanish passages, and write sentences and short papers. Students will master the use of present tense verbs and be exposed to the past and future tense of verbs. Class meets five days a week, which allows full immersion of the language. Students will learn two more units of vocabulary than the middle school Spanish class does.
