Start speaking Spanish while “Traveling the Spanish Speaking World”. Students will play games, eat Hispanic foods, listen to and sing songs from different Spanish speaking countries in Spanish, read/ listen to cultural stories in Spanish and English, re-tell spanish stories with puppets and more! This class requires minimal reading and writing, and focuses on language acquisition through immersion methods: daily life experiences, listening and speaking new vocabulary, singing songs and playing games. No matter what your Spanish language level, you will enjoy yourself, learn new things, and will learn to communicate by asking questions and formulating responses. This is a teacher and student driven course, constantly developing & changing, so the topics are influenced by students’ interests. However, students will learn very basic grammar and thematic vocabulary related to topics covered and identification and geography of many Spanish speaking countries and cultures. This is how languages are normally acquired, and so our brains are all ready to learn in this method. The more we hear a new language, the easier it will be to speak and understand, so this class immerses the new learner in this beautiful language as well learning about and enjoying the food and culture in Spanish speaking countries!
