Spanish Courses

Spanish 1
Suggested Age

13-18

 

Prerequisite

none

 

Purpose

The Spanish 1 course is designed for one full high school foreign language credit. The text presents the basics of the Spanish language as spoken in Latin America. Students learn greetings, verb conjugation, vocabulary, pronunciation and grammatical structures. They also expand their horizons through the cultural/historical highlights and get a glimpse of the Spanish-speaking world as a mission field. Students will develop a beginning reading and conversational ability. The material will emphasize understanding and practical application rather than rote memory. Students should have a basic understanding of English grammar, preferably through the seventh grade, before beginning this course. New vocabulary and grammar skills are introduced weekly. The 75 minute class will enable the student to complete approximately 3-3 1/2 hours of work for home consisting of memory work, written exercises, on-line assignments, quizzes and tests. Daily work and class participation are essential for success in the class.

Spanish 3
Suggested Age

Spanish 1 & 2 or equivalent

 

Purpose

The Spanish 3 course puts to use all the vocabulary and grammar acquired in Spanish 1 and Spanish 2. Grammar review allows review of key grammatical principles and continues to build on their knowledge. Spanish translations of several books in the Chronicles of Narnia will be read throughout the year as well as original classic Spanish short stories and play excerpts. Class time will include grammar review, reading and oral exercises. Time away from the classroom will include vocabulary enrichment, extensive reading and writing (yes, in Spanish). My goal is for each student to continue in their development of reading and conversational abilities of the Spanish language. In order to accomplish this each student must be willing to commit 45-60 minutes every school day in addition to class time.
