This year the students will be studying Spanish with a stronger cultural context that will be supplemented with Spanish grammar. Students will embark on virtual tours of the 21 Spanish-speaking countries and learn to apply grammar to everyday life. Students will learn to compare their communities, make connections, and compare their everyday life to those of Spanish-speaking countries. Students will learn to communicate in the target language. The goal is for students to be novice-high fluent by the end of the year according to ACTFL guidelines.
