Spanish – elective


This course will provide students with an introduction to Spanish. We will be using a method called TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling). After some basic vocabulary introduction in the first few weeks, we will begin using storytelling and reading as the main way of learning Spanish. I think you’ll find that learning a language in the context of a story is fun and helps you remember what you’ve learned. My goal is to make the course engaging by offering you opportunities to develop your speaking, listening, reading, and writing


abilities in Spanish. We will also be working on various projects over the course of the year like Spanish comic books, slide presentations, art projects etc. Learning about the Spanish-speaking world and its culture will also be a part of the curriculum. This is a great course to prepare students for Spanish 1 in high school.

Note: All are welcome, but since this is an introductory class, if you already have a strong background in Spanish, you may consider choosing a different elective.
