Spanish I

10 LightUnits - 1 Credit

This first-year Spanish course consists of ten LightUnits, cassette tapes to accompany each LightUnit, and a cassette tape used with each LightUnit test.

Students study the Spanish language first by listening and repeating, then by reading and writing. They will also study the basic rules and principles of the Spanish language. As they increase in their ability to understand the spoken language and converse in Spanish, students will also learn to sight-read Spanish communications from the LightUnits, write Spanish sentences, and develop an awareness of the cultures of Spanish-speaking people.

Each LightUnit contains one self test per section and one LightUnit test. For a full year’s study, each LU must be completed in about three weeks. (Grade 11 or 12)
