Language, introductory language, vocabulary on communication and
vocabulary on feelings/emotions.

introductory to the course and to the study of Spanish.
Unit Rationale:
This unit is designed to help students understand the importance
that different forms of communication plays in Honduras and
people who are deaf in the Spanish community and how their
language learning compares with that of other people. It
engages students in exploring how and why Spanish Sign
language relates to the life of a child. This unit gives students
opportunities to learn about other people who struggle with
finding ways to communicate in different languages, learn the
procedures of the class and give them a firm foundation to build
their language study upon. These explorations support students in
developing communicative proficiency by introducing them to
