Our Spanish program will introduce students to the basics of the language and culture. The learning objectives include familiarizing students with basic vocabulary plus oral and written use of words. Students will study the culture to better understand the Spanish-speaking people and their customs.

Students will develop an enduring understanding that:

  • Effective communication requires knowing how, when and why to say something to someone.
  • An ability to communicate in another language fosters an appreciation of cultural similarities and differences and an understanding of my place in the world.
  • Learning other languages and exploring their cultures enables an individual to interact within our global community and beyond the classroom.
  • Skills acquired in one language support, reinforce and develop skills in other languages and disciplines.
