Welcome to Spanish! This is going to be an exciting year to build upon what you learned in other classes and also increase your knowledge of the Spanish culture. Our central goal is to learn how to effectively COMMUNICATE in the Spanish language and everything we do in this class will help make that possible. Will this class look like all others? NO! You will notice very fast that this class is not at all like your others. You cannot learn a second language by studying from a textbook and taking a test. Acquiring a language is like learning how to ride a bike or learning how to swim. It's a skill you build gradually, use and remember a long time. Sometimes this class will resemble an elementary classroom. This is desirable since we are working on acquiring a new language. In a beginning level class it’s as though you are an “infant” in the new language but your vocabulary will grow quickly.
