Spanish 7

Spanish7 will provide an introduction to the Spanish language and Spanish and Hispanic culture.  The four aspects of language learning will be emphasized:  listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

We will be using the textbook Buen Viaje, and will cover the Preliminares (preliminary lessons) and Chapters 1-4.  Each student will have a textbook to keep at home and have access to a classroom set of textbooks.

At the end of the year, students will know the days, months and how to say the date in Spanish; be able to count from 0 to 1000; be able to tell time; be able to describe the seasons of the year and the weather.  They will know basic expressions of courtesy, how to order in a restaurant, how to introduce themselves and others and how to describe themselves and others.  They will learn how to describe things that are happening now (present tense) and be able to describe what they do in school and what subjects they are studying.
