CESU World Language Mission Statement:

Our mission is to prepare students to participate in local and global communities with an international mindset.  We believe that in a world shaped by global politics and economics, global literacy cannot exist without modern language and culture instruction.  The study of world languages and cultures enriches and enhances lifelong learning experiences and achievements, while promoting greater intellectual development.

Spanish 1 - Grade 8

Is designed to develop the basic communication skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing as well as the understanding of other cultures.  Students will be expected to take ownership of their learning and to complete the homework assigned each night and it is expected to take about 15 to 20 minutes. When students DO NOT have homework I would highly encourage them to practice their vocabulary as vocabulary helps to build solid foundations!  8th graders will meet 4 times per week throughout the year.  

*This will be the last year of a single year Spanish 1 program.

Spanish 1a - Grade 7

NEW THIS YEAR.  This year's 7th graders will be taking Spanish 1 over the course of 2 years allowing us to dive deeper into each theme, to play more with the language (using more age appropriate activities) and for the students to have a deeper sense of what they are learning.

Those students who meet the standard at the end of their 7th grade year will move on to take Spanish 1b as 8th graders.  We, the language teachers, are very excited about this shift to a two year program and look forward to all that will come.

Spanish Exploratory - Grade 5

Is designed to continue the study of the Spanish Language and Cultures that began in the lower levels (k-4) but  with a focus on the theme of food.

Our classes meet one time per week for an hour all year long.  During this time we will explore the vocabulary and cultures of the Spanish speaking communities.  The idea is to excite students and to get them to want to further their exploration of languages in general.
