• Spanish 1

    Designed to introduce students to Spanish language and culture, Spanish 1 courses emphasize basic grammar and syntax, simple vocabulary, and the spoken accent so that students can read, write, speak, and understand the language at a basic level within predictable areas of need, using customary courtesies and conventions. Spanish culture is introduced through the art, literature, customs, and history of Spanish-speaking people.

    In middle schools, this course is typically divided into two parts and taken over two years as level 1A and level 1B. Students must successfully pass 1A in order to enroll in 1B. Credit will be awarded at the end of successful completion of both levels 1A and 1B. To receive 1.0 credit for a level 1 language, 1A and 1B must both be completed successfully prior to leaving 8th grade.
