Course Description:
The Spanish Elementary 1 course consists of 180 lesson days formatted in an intuitive calendar view, which can be divided into two 90-day semesters. The content for each week is based on an immersive Diglot Weave story which runs throughout the course with weekly episodes beginning in English and each day weaving in more Spanish. Although the course focuses principally on vocabulary acquisition, basic grammar principles are intuitively grasped through the story, games, activities, and assessments. In addition, students learn to perform a different simple story each semester. Culture lessons are presented through multi-media CultureGrams lessons covering cultural aspects of major Spanish-speaking areas in Europe and the Americas.
