From Monolingual to Bilingual just like that! With this course, your student will not only develop and expand their linguistic abilities but they will gain confidence and cultivate new cultural understanding.
Throughout this Spanish Level 1 course, your student will learn the basic structure of the Spanish language and will garner a solid grammatical base to build upon. They will learn to ask and answer questions, talk about relationships, order food, make comparisons, talk about their plans, and speak in the past tense. Students memorize Bible verses and listen to praise music in Spanish, which will allow them to expand their biblical vocabulary, something students cannot find in a traditional classroom. Exploration of a variety of Spanish-speaking cultures and traditions are woven throughout the course and students will actively participate and engage in the course as we practice these various concepts and make cultural and linguistic connections.
The ultimate goal is that students become better equipped and motivated to speak and interact with the Spanish-speaking community as a result of a greater cultural and linguistic understanding garnered in this course.
“My 9th grade daughter took Ashley Stickel’s Spanish 1 class. Ashley was a great teacher. She communicated very well with her students and the parents. She was available for extra help when necessary. She would send me email’s if my daughter did not turn something in or seemed to be having trouble. She would provide extra resources to help her. She was very kind to her students and provided a great class for them. My daughter enjoyed Ashley’s class. We plan for her to take Ashley’s Spanish 2 class in the Fall.”
