My classroom is described as being a "Comprehensible Classroom." Think of learning your first language - did you complete worksheets as a toddler? Most likely, you learned your first language through Input Acquisition (learning by listening, watching, reading, and participating). After spending a significant time in an Input Phrase, you began to speak!

Our classroom has the same philosophy! I will teach in Spanish 90% of the time. Students will learn through listening, watching, reading, and participating in comprehensible and compelling lessons designed to build their "input" of the Spanish language. Students eventually begin to speak in fluent sentences. Please be patient with your student. Just like toddlers, not everyone begins to speak a new language at the same pace.
