The goal in Spanish in levels Preschool - 4th at Saint Andrew Catholic School will be to acquire the language by building onto the knowledge from each grade level. “Acquiring” a language is something that happens to you instead of something that you make happen. Most of our class time will be spent using Spanish and the focus will be on listening and reading instead of speaking and writing. Those skills will come naturally as you take in more and more Spanish by listening and reading, but they will not be a major focus of the course. Our classes will use Comprehensible Input and TPRS methodologies with a focus on the acquisition of high frequency structures. We will use these structures in class discussions, stories, and cultural explorations.
