Are you preparing for a missions trip? Do you want to connect with the Hispanic population in your community, or are you looking for a class to fulfill your foreign language credit? Spoken in over 20 countries around the world, Spanish is also the second most spoken tongue in the United States. Spanish I is an introductory course where we will learn the basics of pronunciation, letters, numbers, verbs in present and past tenses, adjective and noun agreement, prepositions, commands, affirmative and negative expressions and lots of vocabulary. Because communication is one of the most fundamental human needs, we will work on basic communication skills using the limited vocabulary of a beginning class mixed with a lot of creativity! We will briefly cover cultures of some of the many Spanish speaking countries, and memorize some Bible verses in Spanish. This will be a very fun and interactive class, using a variety of methods to learn and practice speaking.
I don’t think I shared enough how helpful Joanna Martinez has been as well. She has a way of putting to words a student’s strength and potential. Austin has struggled some with the mechanics of Spanish, but Sra Martinez sees that he has an ear for what sounds right. That strength fits into Austin’s goal for Spanish—to learn to speak it. He sees now that the mechanics need to happen. She has made adaptations to keep Austin on the right track.
My son has really enjoyed his 2 classes this year. He is registered for 4 next school year and I registered my daughter for 2 semesters of science for the next school year. Customer service is outstanding and so are his teachers.
