ESPAÑOL 1A (Spanish 7)
This interactive semester course introduces Spanish speaking, listening, reading, writing and Hispanic culture, primarily focusing on oral skills. Students will be able to provide and ask basic autobiographical information (i.e.: name, age, residence, nationality, telephone, etc.) as well as everyday dialogue (i.e.: greetings, weather, date, etc.). Students will learn common expressions, the alphabet, numbers, days, months, seasons, family, likes and dislikes, colors, greetings and goodbyes, courtesies, questions, weather, animals, adjectives, verbs, classroom vocabulary, Hispanic holidays, Hispanic world geography and about the Spanish influence in our world in a variety of ways. This course, along with ESPAÑOL 1B (Spanish 8), is aligned to national standards as set forth by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) and New York State requirements. Each student will need to pass a State Proficiency Exam at the end of ESPAÑOL 1B (Spanish 8) in order to receive one unit of credit for World Language.
