Grade 6

Spanish Beginning

In this course, students take a virtual tour of Spain. Of course, the visit will be more enjoyable if the students know what the people around them are saying. No need to worry—this course provides basic vocabulary, keeps students from getting lost, and helps them make some new Spanish friends.

Students learn to ask for directions, order food in a restaurant, and talk about the weather, all without being embarrassed by their accents. New words and phrases are introduced with text, pictures, and audio clips that demonstrate proper pronunciation. Students acquire skills to read, write, and speak basic Spanish. Students also learn the basic Spanish grammar that will make their sentences come out right.
