MS Intro to Spanish


Janet Wilde

7th-8th Grade

This introduction will build a foundation upon which students can develop an interest and understanding of Spanish, giving them relevant tools to guide them into further language study. We will explore real-life vocabulary and language skills through oral, listening, reading, and written practice. Students will learn basic Spanish conversation, writing, and phonics through a combination of speaking activities, songs, games, and traditional methods.


Materials needed: regular composition notebook, pencils, glue stick, scissors. $10 supply fee per student. Please direct questions to Janet at
