Hola, bienvenidos. Hi, Welcome to Spanish.
I'd like to tell you a little about myself. I'm a native Spanish speaker, my parents are from Spain. I grew up in Miami and lived in Vidalia, GA for 19 years. I've been teaching since 1991. This is my 7th year at Holt High. 2019-2020 school year is going to be great.
Both French & Spanish is a course that requires dedication, persistence and attention to detail.
Spanish 1's goal is to be able to communicate at the most basic level, begin to understand cultural differences as well as similarities, adopt pronunciation practices. In other words, be able to introduce our self and others, order at a restaurant, tell time, express date, describe people and things, etc.
Spanish 2 & 3 is a continuation of Spanish 1. The language becomes more complex and involved. This course adds political and historical knowledge.
Spanish 2& 3's goals are to be able to hold a more complex and complicated conversation in the past, present and future.
Spanish 3 for Heritage Speakers [Native Speakers] focuses on reading and written language proficiency.
