Want to: - Give your learner valuable exposure to introductory Spanish sounds, phrases, and songs on your own schedule? - Reduce "Zoom fatigue" through multiple modes of learning on and offline: educational videos, audio, writing, movement, flashcards, and coloring pages? - Help "hook" your learner to the magic of Spanish in an engaging and comfortable format (especially ideal for shy learners, students apprehensive to speak in live classes, etc.)? In this flex class, your learner will...
Class Content: Week 1: "My name is ____.", "Nice to meet you", the vowel sounds "A, E, I, O, U" (enrichment: a sample vocabulary word for each vowel) Week 2: "hello", "goodbye", "cat", "monkey", "1, 2, 3" (enrichment: His/her/its name is ______.) Week 3: "good morning", "good afternoon", "good evening", "I will sleep" (enrichment: the Colombian flag colors) Week 4: "bear", "how are you?", "(I’m) well, and you?" Learners will occasionally be exposed to some additional Spanish vocabulary through the videos and discussion posts to offer additional language input.
I passed the Spanish Praxis exam required to teach Spanish in my state and taught middle school Spanish for 2 years. I have also formally worked as a Spanish interpreter to interpret parent-teacher conferences. While I am Hispanic, I am not a native Spanish speaker.
Every week, learners will create a short audio or video of themselves (they can use the "add video" button in the classroom) saying the vocabulary words or singing the Spanish song and share it with other learners. They can also complete each week's coloring page and worksheet at home and share it on the discussion board.
I will watch each learner's videos and share encouraging comments!
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parents may need to help their learners watch each week's video, participate while watching (through repeating and/or acting out the words), and upload audio/video and pictures in the discussion board.
