Beginning Spanish for the True Beginner I is the first step for students interested in learning Spanish from the ground up. Students with no prior, or very little, experience with Spanish are invited to learn in a fun and stress-free classroom environment. Students will develop basic vocabulary for a variety of topics for everyday situations here and abroad. The topics include the alphabet, vowels, ponunciation, numbers, greetings, telling time, colors, shapes, clothing, likes and dislikes and exposure to available Spanish learning resources. Through games, music, movement, paired and group activities, simple conversations, dictations and the creation of a personal dictionary and books; students learn to comprehend, ask and answer basic questions and follow classroom instructions in Spanish. Students will explore writing and reading using vocabulary, phrases and sentences in simple Spanish. This introductory class will prepare students to comfortably transition to Spanish for the True Beginner II or a more academic Beginning Spanish class where the structures of the language are taught.
