***Spring will be returning students only or those with special permission from the instructor. Students will need a substantial amount of Spanish to begin mid-year.
Additional Registration is required. Please email the teacher to confirm available times.
***There is at least 2 hours of required homework per week for this class***
Days/ times are to be scheduled with the instructor: twice weekly, Mon.- Thurs.
You will learn Spanish through USING Spanish. We don't memorize vocabulary lists or study grammar points. We read books, sing songs, play games and chat in Spanish. About 90% of the class is taught in Spanish (YES! From Day One!). Culture is taught by walking out my door or explaining life in Mexico. (Yes! I am teaching from Mexico!) Homework is required. If you want to learn at a Jr. High or a High school level, you have to do the work of the Jr. High/High school level. The Dos Mundos' Spanish One course covers the same material as a high school or Jr. High course.
Dos Mundos Spanish Syllabus
*Please note: it is important to make as informed a decision as possible when choosing your student's Community Resource classes. Most locations will allow a student to drop a class after one meeting, at no charge if it wasn't a good fit for the student, but not all. Some classes plan ahead based on the number that have signed up and have purchased materials, hired teachers, etc. and there might be a fee for class time or materials given to the student if the student drops after one or two meetings. The school cannot pay for classes that students do not complete, so choose wisely; if you do not take the class off of your student's schedule by the deadline, you may be asked to pay for the class time incurred prior to dropping the class.
