Spanish I

Spanish I is designed as an entry level course to accommodate students new to Spanish and to prepare them for the more advanced levels in future years. Students learn the basics of the Spanish language, and attain the ability to express themselves in brief conversations about everyday topics, including hobbies, favorite activities, and their classes at school. Students acquire key words and phrases from simple listening passages and also gain knowledge and understanding of Hispanic culture. They read simple texts and write brief essays on them and other topics that are discussed in class.
