7th – 8th Grade

Our students learn in a comprehensible input-based environment where the focus is on fostering language acquisition. Our student-centered language classes provide opportunities for learners to develop beginning-level competency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in Spanish. Students gain confidence in speaking by engaging in scaffolded communicative activities about themselves and familiar topics with their classmates in the target language.

Each class meeting, students learn new vocabulary, build familiarity with high-frequency verbs and simple grammatical structures through short comprehensible readings, songs, and videos. The goal of our program is to build a foundation for future language learning.
