Welcome to my Spanish Class! I am very much looking forward to working with each and every one of you this year. This syllabus is a guideline for you to follow throughout the semester in order to be a successful Spanish I student.
In the first year, you will study grammar at a beginner level and will learn to communicate in real-life situations with increasing precision and accuracy. The continued use of Spanish, with an emphasis on culture, customs, and real-life situations, helps develop a broader perspective and appreciation of languages and cultures of others as well as your own. Foreign language study helps to develop respect for cultural diversity as well as confidence in basic skills of communication. As a reminder: THIS IS A HIGH SCHOOL COURSE.
- Develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
- Use language skills for purposeful communication.
- Acquire global insight; understand cultural diversity.
- Use the target language skills for purposeful communication for interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational tasks.
- ¡Qué chévere! Level 1 (EMC World Languages)
- **Practice Workbook-accompanies the Text
