¡Bienvenidos! Welcome to Spanish!
In our Spanish program students are encouraged to learn a second language as well as gain a deeper understanding of other cultures, worldviews, and places. All students receive Spanish classes three times a week. These classes provide ample opportunities for listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Not only does this provide them a valuable foundation for future language study, it helps them to improve their understanding of their own native tongue as well! With this approach, students acquire meaningful language competency and an exposure to the rich cultures of the Spanish speaking world. Experiencing different cultural norms provides students not only with a deeper understanding of their own culture, but most importantly helps them become better global citizens.
Along with regular classes, the Spanish program also provides opportunities throughout the year to learn about Spanish-speaking cultures. We have celebrated Day of the Dead, Carnaval, Cinco de Mayo, Friendship Day, and other holidays with food, presentations, and activities so that students can better immerse themselves in Spanish-speaking culture.
