Spanish Language Offerings & Curriculum

Spanish 1: Spanish 1 is designed to be taken in either Advance or Honors track. We focus on three departments; Culture, Vocabulary, and Grammar. Culture is discussed at the beginning of every chapter and it specifies on a certain country, vocabulary is broken into two sections as well of grammar in each chapter. We get the basic concept of Spanish in this class. This class can be taken as an elective, if it is approved from teacher.

Spanish 2: Spanish 2 is designed to be taken in either Advance or Honors track, and it is a continuation of Spanish 1. This class is also broken down into three separate departments, Culture, Vocabulary, and grammar. Culture is now cities in Latin America of the countries we discussed in Spanish 1. Spanish 2 takes a deeper depth into grammar and vocabulary. This class is designed to add everything learned in Spanish 1 and finish with Spanish 2.

Spanish 3: This class is more of an elective, you must have taken Spanish 1 & 2. This class first semester is to recap everything learned in Spanish 1 & 2, with culture, vocabulary, and grammar. Second semester we make it more of a conversation class and learn more about countries that we didn't discuss in Spanish 1 & 2. Very interactive based class, more college level learning with conversation, culture and everyday world views of Latin America.
