Taught by Jan Castro
Middle School Spanish: 5th-8th grade students who want an opportunity to be exposed to Spanish conversation, vocabulary and bits of easy grammar concepts through hands-on activities and games while learning. Cost: $8 per student per class. One hour classes held once a week – approx. 24 weeks. 5-10 students. No textbooks required.
Spanish 1: 9th-12th grade students who need a foreign language for high school credit. There will be at least 3 days of homework each week. The class consists of mostly grammar and vocabulary lessons with some conversations using Abeka curriculum. New concepts will be introduced in small doses, building upon what has already been learned.
Spanish 2 is open to those completing Spanish 1, or for those who can pass the placement test (for those who have not previously used Abeka’s Spanish 1). With at least 3 days of homework each week, Spanish 2 continues to add more verb tenses and helps the students build more complex sentence structures to their Spanish abilities.
Spanish 3 is open to those completing any Spanish 2 curriculum. It will involve a lot more conversation, reading, writing and speaking of Spanish grammar and vocabulary learned from previous years and applying it to daily life. Using the official study guide, students will also be prepared to take the Spanish CLEP test given by the College Board for college credit.
Cost: High School classes: $360 per student for the year (easy payments available; sibling discount available). Students will purchase their own textbooks.
