Description: This is a fun, challenging, and very interactive high school Spanish course. Students will put all their Spanish I skills to good use, as they work to expand their vocabulary and learn advanced grammar concepts. Through a variety of activities, students will increase their reading, writing, listening, comprehension, and speaking abilities. Students will also continue to have exposure many other areas such as geography, history, music, and art as they pertain to the Spanish language and culture. The Realidades I textbook and practice workbook are very user friendly, comprehensive, and also offer online practice and self-tests. Everyone will be expected to speak Spanish as much as possible.

Tutor: Sue Welsh has a B.A. in Spanish and a M.A. in Secondary Education. Sue has spent extended time in both Spain and Mexico.

She believes in a very interactive approach to teaching Spanish. She also believes strongly in lifelong learning, and providing students with the tools to continue their own learning once they leave the classroom.
