**This live class meets weekly for 60 minutes
This three-foreign language expedition takes an interactive look at Spanish, French, and German, spending about a month on each language. We explore these through motions, storytelling, and copy work – the class even writes a group story IN the foreign language! Students will have the chance to learn two Scriptures in each language, a hymn and a folk song, and work with colors, numbers, and common structures in each language. During class, your students will practice the languages through some storytelling, reading, writing, and responding in the target language. They will also briefly study the geography of the regions which speak the language, the spiritual climate of the countries, and the culture and foods. This is an exploratory class rather than an academic class, so memorization is not required – but the students are required to say their verses in class, with instructor help. The scores are for trying, not for the quality of their pronunciation. Independent research and oral reports back to the class are an integral part of the class. There will rarely be a quiz or test; the bulk of the grade comes from the daily work and class participation. One project will be required, and three small ‘culinary adventures’ in each language culture are also required. This is a student and family favorite!
