This is a beginning level course that will introduce the student to a variety of areas of language learning.  In this course, the student will learn listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through activities that are based on pedagogically proven methods of foreign language instruction.  Throughout the ten units of material (Greetings, The date, Weather, Time, Colors, Places, Family, Food, Activities, and School & Routines), students learn to express themselves using an ever increasing vocabulary,  present-tense verbs, articles, and adjectives.  Grammar is introduced and practiced in innovative and interesting ways with a variety of learning styles in mind.

Culture is sprinkled throughout the course in an attempt to help the learner focus on the Spanish speaking world and their culture, people, geographical locations and histories.

This course is aligned to the national Foreign Language standards.
