Instructor: Debbie Siegal

Monthly Cost: $25

Pre-requisites: Reading and writing at a 3rd grade level or higher. A basic understanding of English grammar is needed, as we will be learning Spanish grammar.

Course Description: This class is designed to introduce older elementary students to the Spanish language. We will cover basic vocabulary (colors, numbers, food, animals, etc) early in the year before introducing more advanced topics such as gender, verbs, adjectives, conjugation and reading and writing sentences. A variety of teaching methods, such as songs, games, worksheets and hands-on activities, will be used to teach concepts. Spanish-speaking countries and culture will also be introduced. Homework will be given weekly. These assignments are meant to reinforce what is discussed in class and to give students extra practice. I will collect homework each week and take it home to be graded. I will keep a record of grades, but only for informational purposes and to provide parents with feedback on their student's progress if desired. Students will earn credits for completing homework that can be used twice a year in a class store.
