About Spanish I: “First year Spanish will start with the basics, including colors, numbers, present tense verbs, and will include such things as getting to know others, going places and doing things, feelings, having and sharing, school life and favorite foods. We learn songs and Bible verses in Spanish and a bit of the Hispanic culture. The pace of the class will be at a high school level but will be fun and will accommodate middle schoolers who want to learn Spanish.”
