Monday, October 4 2021 @ 3:00PM - Monday, June 13 2022 @ 4:30PM EDT| $600.00
Students have the opportunity to earn foreign language credit for high school transcripts. Spanish I focused on the basic rules; now we get to have fun with those as well as start getting a bit more challenged! Spanish vocabulary and grammar will be practiced through reading short character dialogues and fables, writing letters to penpals in Hispanic countries, and using YouTube videos of native speakers. Projects include creating Google Slide presentations about traditional holidays and virtual field trips. Targeted to motivated students willing to keep up with the exercises at home. By the end of the course students will be expected to answer multiple questions in complete sentences, conjugate verbs in all subjects as well as past, present and future tenses, and read and comprehend paragraphs in Spanish.
Learning a foreign language can be rigorous; it should also be fun! Ms. Rachel expects students to not just keep up with the rules of grammar, but also to explore and respect the richness of the many aspects of Hispanic culture. As long as students are making a good effort, Ms. Rachel is happy to adapt and assist as needed to help everyone succeed! She encourages both students and parents to contact her throughout the year with concerns and feedback. Learning is a team effort and she looks forward to welcoming you to the team!
