This class is taught in Spanish.
There will be a combination of videos, audio excerpts, pictures/infographics, discussion boards, or music, and, of course, stories all focused on a specific topic. We will learn new vocabulary in the context of the story each lesson. Throughout this 8 week course, Students will be practicing the 4 main parts of learning Spanish through reading, listening, speaking & writing through various activities. Activities may include: written or spoken responses in the form of practicing reading/listening comprehension, spoken Q & A/prompts, or writing prompts. Response activities are centered around a main story tied to each week's topic.
I have been a certified Spanish teacher for the past 24 years. I have a masters in education. I lived and studied in Spain for several years so I have a true Spanish accent (castellano). I have attended CI (comprehensible Input) conferences and implement the CI teaching strategy into my lessons.
Homework will consist of watching the weekly video lesson and completing practice activities. Practice activities will be completed individually and may take up to 20 minutes each week. Learners will be encouraged to make videos, draw pictures and record themselves speaking Spanish. They are also able to interact with other learners in the Outschool classroom. The learners will receive digital flashcards that can be printed out each week.
