Class Introduction

In American high schools, students are required to study a foreign language for 2-4 years as part of their graduation requirements. Spanish is often offered as a second language option, as it is widely spoken in the United States. However, many international students may not have prior exposure to Spanish before starting to learn it in school. To help these students adjust to the classroom environment, a beginner’s Spanish course is available specifically for international students.

We now offer class in May and June.


After completing the course, students are expected to reach the following goals:

  • Practice basic dialogue about daily lives with other class members/teachers
  • Learn basic grammatical structures & vocabulary
  • Identify major Spanish-speaking regions of the world and describe cultural practice
  • Comprehend reading paragraphs and confidently read them out loud
