Spanish instruction begins in kindergarten. Through the 3rd grade, the program is largely an exposure to the language and the culture of the various Latin American countries. 4th & 5th graders follow an academic program which focuses on conversation and everyday vocabulary. Students at this level begin studying verbs and sentence construction. In the 6th grade students begin a program which will allow them to complete and exceed the requirements of Spanish 1 by the end of 8th grade. Students read, speak and write in Spanish. At all levels, students are exposed to the cultures of Spain and various countries in Latin America.
