How do you decide which foreign language to study? What if you start with Spanish, but don’t really like it – and find you like German better? You have already invested in the first choice, and it’s hard to make a change. This class can help! Your student will experience a taste of six languages and cultures, and touch on the geography and culture to go with them. We will explore Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian and Arabic. Your student will learn the same Scripture in each language, the chorus to “Jesus Loves Me”, how to count (at least from one to ten), the basic colors, as well as elements of the culture and the countries who speak that language. We’ll discuss and research the spiritual climates in each culture as well — what is the predominant faith? What is evangelism like for missionaries to this culture? And we can’t leave out the best part — we’ll explore foods, recipes, and other ways to engage with the languages & cultures we study. Students will do a few small projects of their choice and have one Culinary Adventure, in which each student prepares at least one dish from one of our cultures for the family. With this kind of overview, your student has experience and knowledge on which to base his high school language choice. Foreign language and culture study are part of developing your student’s heart for missions as he sees the value and dignity of each people group God has created, as well as helping grow a desire to communicate the amazing truth of the Gospel to all nations.
The class and teacher were great!
Mrs Mac makes the learning fun!
Dear Mrs. Mcllvaine, THANK YOU! Jaden has thoroughly enjoyed your class and has learned a lot but most importantly to us as a family, is the love of learning he’s had while in your class. THANK YOU for the life lessons he’s learned while being in your class as well. He’s learned how to be responsible and truly cares about turning in his assignments and the grades he’s received. We’ve seen him mature in this last semester with you. Praise God for you desire to teach the next generation about His truths and sovereignty over ALL. We will be signing him up for next semester as well. (His request)
