    Dear Parents:

    Welcome to Spanish Class!

    Learning Spanish will provide students the unique opportunity to become familiar and comfortable with the use of foreign languages and the understanding of new cultures.

    Through a variety of tools like multimedia, music, and peer interaction students will learn to read and communicate in Spanish. They will also gain knowledge of the diverse cultural aspects of many Spanish-speaking countries.

    The curriculum follows the standards for learning a World Language and the NJ Common Core Standards.
