    Have you ever wanted to learn a foreign language?  Well, this is the class for you!
     
     
     Spanish will be a fun, interactive class that will teach students to read, write AND speak the Spanish language in everyday situations.  This class will count as a high school Carnegie unit; therefore, additional reinforcement will be required outside of class.  Note cards (flashcards) are highly recommended to quiz your child on new vocabulary.  Online resources will also be available for additional practice.  Students will also need to bring a Spanish/English dictionary to class daily.
