Spanish 3
Tutor: Sue Welsh
Length: Full Year Class Period: Wednesday, period 2

Description:  This is a fun, challenging, and very interactive high school Spanish course. Students will put all their Spanish I and II skills to good use, as they work to expand their vocabulary and learn advanced grammar concepts. Fluency in expression and comprehension are goals for this level. 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 II textbook and practice workbook are very user friendly, comprehensive, and also offer online practice and self-tests. Our goal is to only speak Spanish in the classroom.

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. In her 26 years of teaching, she has taught in public, private, and corporate settings. She has experience with all ages from preschool to adult. She has also tutored for South Heights Christian Classes in Burnsville. As a public high school teacher, Sue implemented an Accelerated Spanish program, and prepared students for the A.P. exam. 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. With her students, Sue speaks Spanish as much as possible. However, English is spoken when necessary. This approach creates a challenging but comfortable environment for students to experiment with the language.
