Spanish - Grades 7 & 8
This is a two year course designed to gently immerse the student into the Spanish language. The primary focus is on grammar- parts of speech, verb conjugations and the like, thereby reinforcing English grammar and paving the way for the student to think in Spanish, not simply memorize phrases.
Students are taught conversation via group and interpersonal skills activities. If the student works diligently throughout the two year course, he/she upon entering high school may advance to Spanish 2 in the Freshman year.
