An introduction to the Spanish language gives our students a jump on fluency in the second-most spoken language in the world.  Learning a second language has shown to improve overall cognitive development, enhance performance in other classes, improve memory, increase communication skills in the first language, increase understanding of grammar in the native language, and increase openness to other cultures.

 

 

ELEMENTARY

Children in grades K-5 attend Spanish class twice a week.  During this time, they become familiarized with the language, focusing on:

  • Vocabulary
  • Verbs and sentence formation
  • Simple conversations
