5310 Spanish 1
Spanish 1 is the beginning course of a five year program. Students build a foundational vocabulary base that enables them to begin communicating in Spanish. Vocabulary and fundamental language skills are practiced through activities such as worksheets, presentations, conversations, interviews, discussions, stories, and films. Spanish 1 also introduces the students to elements of Hispanic culture, geography, and history. Students are expected to actively participate in the classroom as well as invest study time outside of class. Upon successful completion of Spanish 1, students should plan to continue with higher-level Spanish courses to gain fluency in the language.
