Elementary School Courses ideal for: Grades 3 - 5 | Ages 8 - 11

Spanish 1

Prerequisites: No experience necessary

Course Length: Each semester course is 90 lessons. Each lesson is about 30 minutes.

Course Description: This course for beginners with little exposure to world languages is geared toward younger minds that are still especially receptive to language learning through contextual interpretation and imitation. Highly visual and amusing stories and activities are geared toward these developing children, encouraging them to begin telling stories themselves. This course is not just a set of language lessons, but an appealing adventure for young minds, rich with graphics, games, and engaging interactive activities. An integrated, game-based reward system keeps learners motivated and eager to progress.

Communication expressions include greetings, introductions, songs, por favor and gracias and other expressions of daily courtesy, simple storytelling, and free-response questions. Vocabulary starts with numbers from 1-10, animals, and shapes before moving into days of the week, seasons, colors, fruits and vegetables, simple directions, and useful "around town" expressions. Grammar moves from simple sentence construction, first-and third-person verbs, and indefinite articles to demonstrative pronouns, simple conjunctions, simple possession, and ser and estar. Children also begin to encounter the third-person past tense, imperative verbs, and second-person present-tense verbs.

Cultural topics introduce the geography and customs of Spanish-speaking countries.

Spanish 2

Prerequisites: Middle School Spanish 1, or equivalent

Course Length: Each semester course is 90 lessons. Each lesson is about 30-45 minutes.

Course Description: The solid basis acquired in Middle School Spanish 1 is expanded through appealing practice and instruction in the form of games and stories, with instruction equivalent to that found in the second semester of high school Spanish I. These activities guide children to express more complex thoughts and understand native language from a variety of culturally authentic sources. Children increase skills in reading, listening comprehension, and vocabulary as they learn sentence patterns and advanced phrases. They learn to identify objects from descriptions, translate to and from Spanish, create stories, and understand and give directions. Vocabulary emphasizes geography, math, plants, animals, and directions, conveyed through increasingly complex poems, stories, and ditties. Grammar topics include object pronouns with finite and infinite verbs, past- and present-tense verbs, action verbs, imperfect tense, participle verb endings, indicative and subjunctive verb forms, and dependent verb clauses. Cultural topics expand to include higher-level content, with special emphasis on the literary and social treasures of Spanish-speaking countries.

Spanish I

Prerequisites: No experience necessary

Course Length: Each semester course is 90 lessons. Each lesson is about 45-60 minutes.

Notes: Students who have already completed Middle School Spanish 2 should enroll in Spanish II rather than in Spanish I.

Course Description: Students begin their introduction to Spanish with fundamental building blocks in four key areas of world-language study: listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing. Students are initially trained to recognize key sounds and basic vocabulary, not only in written form but also through ear training that leads quickly to oral production. Vocabulary and grammar topics are introduced in an ongoing adventure story that prompts students to use skills from all four language-learning areas. Students learn fundamental grammar as embedded in authentic spoken language. Cultural information covers major Spanish-speaking areas in Europe and the Americas. Engaging graphics, video, and games keep students interested, making learning languages exciting. An integrated, game-based reward system keeps learners motivated and eager to progress.
