 “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” – Nelson Mandela

 

Both Spanish I and II courses seek to develop a solid foundation in basic Spanish vocabulary and grammatical concepts. Heritage's goal is that students in all Spanish courses will...

  • Develop a love for learning languages and new language study strategies

  • Feel confident hearing and speaking Spanish, not just reading and writing since primary goal of learning a language is communication!

  • Connect and build community with other students through partner activities and games that reinforce the language

 

This class is lively and entertaining, yet challenging.  Engaging, interactive in-class activities (1 hour/week + 45 min/week online) seek to develop speaking and listening skills in the target language.  Homework assignments (45 - 60 min/week) generally involve writing assignments and vocabulary memorization.  

 

Spanish 2, taught primarily in Spanish, is a second year course. Although students will not be fluent by the end of the year, they will definitely have a broad range of both vocabulary and grammatical concepts to draw upon when communicating in the target language. Among other things, students can expect to be able to do the following by the end of this course:

  • Read and understand house/apartment rental advertisements.

  • Describe their own home and compare it to someone else's

  • Ask for and give directions.

  • Order food in a restaurant.

  • Bargain for produce at a farmer’s market.

  • Describe daily routines.

  • Look for and buy clothing at the mall.

  • Explain to a doctor what hurts or report an accident.

  • Tell friends at school what they did over the weekend.
