Elementary Spanish (K-5)

The Spanish program at A.E. Phillips is designed to expose children to a second language and culture. The program’s goal is to equip students to be able to communicate in our diverse society. Students are introduced to the Spanish language and culture at an early age when language learning is more effectively retained. The Spanish program consists of activities and strategies that help diverse learners begin to become proficient in their language and cultural learning. Students participate in language activities that target the five goal areas of language learning. The program is designed to promote proficiency in communication, understanding other cultures, connecting with other disciplines and diverse perspectives, comparing the nature of language and cultures, and participating in culturally diverse and multilingual communities. 

 

Middle School Spanish (6-8)

The middle school Spanish program is similar to the elementary in the goals targeted for each student; however, the middle school Spanish program is made up of Spanish I, Spanish II, and Advanced Spanish. Each course occurs over a nine weeks period where students are exposed to the target language at varying levels. As students continue their Spanish studies in middle school, students are often completing coursework that is equivalent to Spanish I at the high school level. Our goals in both learning programs include promoting proficiency in communication, understanding other cultures, connecting with other disciplines and diverse perspectives, comparing the nature of language and cultures, and participating in culturally diverse and multilingual communities.
