I love teaching Spanish 1 because it is a time of discovery of cultures and making connections in our languages. We sing, play games and even dance sometimes. Of course, there is a serious side to our studies as well. Every year of studying a Language Other Than English has been shown to improve SAT scores by 5% per year. We are laying a solid foundation to build upon for Spanish II, III and into the future. I have never had a student come back to class disappointed that they had been able to use their Spanish. This is a class that students can start using from Day 1!
