331 Spanish I

2 semesters, 1 credit

Open to freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors

Prerequisite: Recommendation of Guidance Counselor based on Achievement Test

Spanish I is an introduction to the language, culture, and customs of Spanish-speaking peoples. Emphasis is placed on listening, speaking, reading, and writing Spanish. iPad and internet access after school will be necessary. Students who do not maintain a “C” grade at the end of the second semester of Spanish I may not take the next level course without teacher approval. They may take Spanish I again to improve their grade to move on to the next level course, but they will receive credit for the course only once. If the student wants to move to the next level course of the language and does not wish to repeat the initial level, he or she will need to successfully complete a summer course to raise his/her grade to a “C” in Spanish I before advancing to Spanish II.
