Course Description:
This course is based on the communicative approach. This course develops a basic proficiency in
Spanish and familiarity with The Hispanic culture through practice in the use of the basic language skills
and acquisition of vocabulary. The goals of the course are to develop listening, speaking, reading, and
writing competency in Spanish and to strive for a comfortable level of communication in the target
language. Real-life applications and interactions with other students and the teacher are stressed as a
means of proficiency in communication. Culture study of Spanish-speaking people helps to make
students aware of the current global and historical significance of the language being studied.

Important Information.
Test day: A test is designed to assess a student’s understanding of the material. The student
will know beforehand what to expect on the test. Before giving the test, the teacher will clearly
explain what to do on the test and will answer any questions; however, after passing out the
test, the teacher will not answer any questions. If a student is caught talking or cheating in any
way, for example using electronic devices such as cell phones, MP3 player/IPOD, or others
while taking a test, the student will receive a grade of 0 for that test. Parents will be contacted as
Substitutes: All work done with a substitute will count.
Translators: It is important that students understand how the target language works; therefore
students should learn it by practicing it, which means that students must do their own work, and
that any unauthorized work done using any kind of translator will have a grade of 0.
Cell phones, MP3 player/IPOD or similar: it is not allowed the use of any of these devices in
class unless it is used for an educational purpose and authorized by the teacher. In case of any
violation regarding the use of any of the above-mentioned devices, the procedure set up by the
school will be followed.
Late work
Assignments are due at the beginning of the class. Homework will not be accepted late. To
earn a 100 for homework it must be completely done. Partial homework is not accepted
since it is graded based on completion. Late projects and papers will be penalized twenty
points per day.
Make-up work
Students should check the website / handout folder and/or homework board when returning
from an absence. Students have a week to make-up work missed from excused
absences. Tests should be made up within a week. If a student returns the day a
prescheduled test is given, only students with excused absences can elect to make-up
the quiz/test within a week. Students with unexcused absences will take the quiz/test as
scheduled with the class.
Tutoring is available after school in the classroom if previously scheduled with the teacher.
