Welcome to Spanish I at Placerita Jr High! This is a year-long, high-school level course which is designed for the beginning Spanish student. The course offers you a chance to receive one year of high school foreign language experience and therefore requires a great deal of time, effort, and responsibility. (Hopefully it will be great fun too!) The course will involve reading, writing, listening, and speaking beginning Spanish with a focus on vocabulary building and grammar. In addition, you will be introduced to the geography and culture of the various Spanish-speaking countries. The textbook for this class is Descubre: Level I, and is designed to prepare you for placement in second year Spanish next year. In order to be successful in this class, you must have a desire to learn Spanish, an excellent work ethic, and a willingness to participate fully in the class! Vamos a empezar- Let's begin!
