Course

Description

Spanish I

Level I students will begin the development of skills first in listening and speaking, and eventually in writing and reading a second language. The primary emphasis will focus on communication in the present tense. Students will demonstrate a proficiency of expression in situations such as: greetings/leave-taking, expressing likes/dislikes, and talking about self and family, friends, home, school, and leisure activities. Students will function in interactive situations with learned expressions. Daily practice in class, as well as at home, is critical where the language is spoken, which would be of interest to young people, will be included in the course of study. Students are expected to speak the language to the extent of their vocabulary.

Spanish II

Students who have demonstrated success at Level I will continue to develop skills in listening and speaking a second language with increased emphasis on writing and reading skills. Knowledge of culturally appropriate behavior in face to face situations will be demonstrated. Students will make requests and obtain information from culturally appropriate materials (menus, schedules, maps, etc.). They will communicate interactively to solve lifelike problems. They will structure productive, grammatically correct sentences and short text. They will begin to expand their use of tenses to express time in the past and future. Students are expected to speak the language to the extent of their vocabulary. Emphasis will be placed on expanded use of tenses to express time in the future as well as cultural differences of people in the world.

Spanish III and IV

Students in the third and fourth years of study will be exposed to more sophisticated language. They will further advance their reading skills through cultural readings, excerpts from literature and authentic readings from Spanish language newspapers and magazines. Students will continue to develop their writing skills through such activities as original dialogues, travel brochures, and creating original storybooks. In addition, the study of the arts will continue at these levels, students will research the history of the countries in which the target language is spoken and students will be required to speak the language in class.
