Course Description for Spanish I and II: All language classes are taught using college level material, stretched to meet high school requirements. Emphasis is on conversation, pronunciation, and feel of the language. Immersion is a great technique but useless for an educated person without grammar to support it. My class brings the student into the language in an immersion style, while having the grammar behind it so when the students begin verbalizing, they do so correctly from the beginning.

The curriculum has integrated with it an online quiz and audio program to keep the student hearing the language daily. I’ve been very pleased with the results of this curriculum.  It is considered one of the premier college language curricula available.
