Description of levels

  • Your child knows some or no words in Spanish.

    Students begin by learning everyday vocabulary and finish the year able to express simple ideas in short sentences. They will develop an authentic accent and have a strong awareness of the Latin culture, opening their minds and widening their thinking skills. Everyday topics such as greetings, colors, numbers, family, opposites, action verbs, the weather, foods, and more are introduced, with functional and useful sentence structures that go with each subject. Once they become familiar with new words, children begin to combine them, forming short sentences to communicate simple ideas with each other and their teacher.

  • Your child knows the practical everyday vocabulary listed in the beginners 1 level description.

    Students will continue to build on fundamental skills and broaden their vocabulary to express simple ideas they can use outside of class. Their sentences will be longer and more detailed. They will also learn common structures in Spanish, such as “I have/I don’t have…” “I like/ I don’t like…”, “I am/I am not…” to encourage conversation about everyday life situations.

  • Your child has a vast everyday vocabulary, fluently speaks at least  6-7 word sentences, and understands all the Spanish spoken in class.

    Students will use the vocabulary and knowledge acquired from the previous levels, focusing on adding more detail through new adjectives, nouns, and verbs, strengthening fluency, and conversing in class. Essential reading and writing skills are introduced.

  • Your child knows everyday vocabulary, expresses simple ideas, and fluently speaks 7-10 word sentences.

    Students continue to build upon the previous years of Spanish knowledge, expand their vocabulary and mechanics, and work on fluency and accent to enrich sentence structure with more detail. New action verbs and diverse subjects are introduced through various activities and games. Reading and writing skills will continue to be developed.

  • Your child can have a conversation about their everyday life in Spanish.

    Students will learn proper mechanics and new skills to express their ideas, master a rich vocabulary, and read and write simple sentences and short paragraphs.

  • Your child possesses an expansive vocabulary, can converse about everyday situations, and read and write Spanish sentences that express many of their ideas and thoughts in the target language.

    Students will continue to expand upon the strong base they already have and learn new topics and structures. In addition, we will work on fluency and accent, with the conversation being the priority.
