ILC High School Spanish I - 1st Semester
In this course, learners begin their introduction to Spanish with fundamental building blocks in four key areas of world language study: listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing, preparing them for a wide range of basic interactions with people, places, and things in their new language environment. They will learn how to introduce themselves, greet others, state what they do, indicate where various people and items are located, and express basic wants and needs. They will learn the basic vocabulary required to begin talking about place of origin, hobbies, family members, interests (e.g., likes, dislikes), and emotions related to family, friends, or pets. They will also learn how to ask about or describe the identity, cost, quantity, and basic physical characteristics of various items while investigating similarities and differences on these topics with Spanish-speaking areas of the world.
