Introductory Spanish

¡Hola!  ¿Qué tal?  Me llamo Señora Johns.  Mucho gusto.   Introductory Spanish is a nine week course designed to expose your son/daughter to the basics of Spanish.  Throughout the past few weeks, we have learned basic greetings, practiced basic conversational skills, the alphabet, and pronunciation of the letters.  In this hands-on class, learning is enriched through music, games, role-play, culture, and technology.   ¡Es una clase fantástica!  ¡Hasta luego

 

 

Español 1A

Students are talking about activities they like and dislike doing in their free time.  Making sentences more complex is getting easier, by adding information like when, with whom, and why we do activities (see example below :).  Culture is being explored by comparing typical American pastimes to those in Spanish-speaking countries.  ¡A mí me gusta estudiar español todos los días con mis compañeros porque es muy divertido!

 

Español 1B

¡Tengo hambre!  ¿Qué hay para comer?  ¡No hay nada!.  ¿Te gustaría ir al restaurante conmigo?  This month, students will continue practicing the food vocabulary and how to describe what they are eating.  They will also learn the niceties of ordering food, paying the bill, leaving a tip, and asking politely for things in a restaurant setting.  This chapter will be particularly important for those of you with travel plans to Spanish-speaking countries or just Spanish-speaking areas in Denver.  The next time you go to an authentic Mexican restaurant, impress the waiter with your language skills!  Before you do, though, it is a good idea to explain in English that you are studying Spanish and would like to practice if possible.  Never assume that anyone speaks/doesn't speak Spanish (or English for that matter).  ¡Buen provecho!

 

 

French Introduction.

Bonjour! Welcome to fourth quarter beginning French class! It was wonderful to meet a new group of students interested in learning French. Students can introduce themselves, tell where they live, greet people, tell their age. The songs, "Lundi Matin" and " Bonjour" help students remember days of the week and teach them a variety of ways to greet each other.

 

French 1A

Students learned descriptive adjectives. Now they can describe their family members, friends, and celebrities. They enjoy playing a guessing game, " Do you know who this person is?".

French 1B

Bonjour! Students read and discussed the stories, "Une Question de Transports" and "Les Robots du Metro". Based on the outcomes of these discussions, students composed their own dialogues about the system of transportation in Paris and in the US. Students continue the mastering of passé compose ( past tense).  They reviewed all three tenses ( present, past and future) and practice speaking about present, past and future events in their lives.

MARCH

 

Spanish 1A students are talking about activities they like and dislike doing in their free time.  Making sentences more complex is getting easier, by adding information like when, with whom, and why we do activities (see example below : ).  Culture is being explored by comparing typical American pastimes to those in Spanish-speaking countries.  ¡A mí me gusta estudiar español todos los días con mis compañeros porque es muy divertido! 

 

Español 1B

¡Vamos a hablar de la comida!  This month the students will be learning the names of many foods!  ¡Qué rico!  They will also learn how to order food politely in a restaurant setting.  Since many of our students may have upcoming trips to a Spanish-speaking country or even just a Spanish-speaking area of Denver, this is an important unit.  The students will also learn to describe how foods taste in general and on any given day.  To do so, they will be contrasting the verbs "ser" and "estar".  ¡La clase de español es muy divertida!

 

INTRODUCTORY SPANISH

¡Hola!  ¿Qué tal?  Me llamo Señora Johns.  Mucho gusto.   Introductory Spanish is a nine week course designed to expose your son/daughter to the basics of Spanish.  Throughout the past few weeks, we have learned basic greetings, practiced basic conversational skills, the alphabet, and pronunciation of the letters.  In this hands-on class, learning is enriched through music, games, role-play, culture, and technology. 

 

We have just completed dialogues using some of the basics, including asking where you come from, how old you are, asking what languages you know, and responding to questions using basic phrases.  The class will wrap up with adjectives, verb conjugation and a final project that encompasses all the skills and vocabulary we have learned cumulatively these past nine weeks.  Students will practice presentational speaking in Spanish, listening, reading and writing.  It's a perfect prerequisite to Spanish 1A.  Although it isn't mandatory, it provides students with some of the basics of the language to give them with a more solid foundation and understanding of a foreign language.  ¡Es una clase fantástica!  It has been a pleasure working with your son/daughter this past quarter.  Muchas gracias.
