If we end up with more people in the class, we'll be able to move to another classroom sometime after 3 p.m. That would be Room 20. If we make that change, though, we will give you directions of where to go to find the room. (Parents, please stay with your children until we decide if we need to make this change, on the first day of class.)
High School Spanish: 2:45 - 4:15 (90 minutes)
Elementary Spanish: 4:40 - 6:00 (80 minutes)
I know there is a gap of time between the two Spanish classes, but we had to do this in order to facilitate with the orchestra classes.
Here are the Youth Orchestra times:
Pre-Beginning (either 4:00-4:30 or 4:30-5:00; both are available)
Beginning (4:00 - 4:30)
Intermediate (4:30 - 5:00)
Advanced (5:00 - 6:00)
Those students who are in Intermediate orchestra and want to take Elementary Spanish will have to choose which activity they want to do, or stay in Intermediate and sign up for High School Spanish.
What will the classes cover?
Rebeca will be focusing on conversational Spanish, using her tried-and-true method to also include grammar, basic rules, intonation, and pronunciation. She has lived in both Mexico and Spain, and will be teaching the higher, educated level of Spanish. It will be understandable in both cultures. She occasionally has UCC students who have taken two years of college Spanish sign up for her
Conversational Spanish classes at the Community Education level (non-credit) just so they can learn to speak Spanish conversationally, as this isn't the focus in the UCC classes.
For the elementary class, students may join the class at the beginning of any month during the school year. It is not required to start in October to participate at the elementary class level. Payment and participation is by-the-month.
For the high school level, students will need to start with the first class in October. Because of the format of the class, it won't be possible for students to join the class in the middle of the school year.
The cost will be $30 per month for the first student in your family. Each additional student will be $5 per month. Parents are free. Parents are welcome to stay and learn as well, or drop off their children.
***IF, however, parents drop off their children for the Spanish classes, the children MUST stay in the classroom at all times unless they are accompanied by a parent chaperone. The staff at the United Methodist Church has been very clear that students are not to be roaming around the building without a parent chaperone. Please pick up your children promptly.*** Thanks!
No textbook will be required for purchase. A Spanish-English dictionary would be helpful but isn't immediately required.
