    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to students who are interested in learning the Spanish language. Taking IB SL 1 would be equivalent to taking Spanish level 3. The course is less focused on the book and more focused on learning to listen to and speak conversationally in the language quickly and efficiently. If you focus and put effort into participating, you will see major improvements in your speaking ability. The class is also recommended because it is a language course that encourages speaking about topics that are important to students. It is very engaging.

    Course highlights:

    The course is centered around using more advanced conjugations and vocabulary in order to speak in conversations or an academic tone. There is writing required as well, so more emphasis is placed on using proper grammar. From the listening assignments, I learned a lot about how to translate quickly and how to eliminate unnecessary redundancies in my speaking.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is easy to think you are doing well in this course when you might not have fully grasped the information. A lot of the grading is based on the effort you put into using the new lessons and participating in class, so many points are awarded there. However, tests are very difficult if you do not take the time to go over the lessons you learned previously. I recommend going over topics that may not be on the test as well as this is a course in which you use lessons over and over again to gain mastery.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this class! I would recommend this class for multiple reasons. First, the teacher is awesome. He helps his students, he super cool, and he actually teaches information we are all interested in. Second, the information we learn is so cool, and intrigues to learn more about different cultures and languages. Third, everyday we would leave the class with more knowledge on the Spanish language or more confidence in our learning abilities.

    Course highlights:

    I definitely learned a lot during this course. I started taking Spanish in seventh grade, but I never really started to appreciate the class until I took this course junior year. I not only learned more Spanish vocabulary, but how to properly use the vocabulary with the correct grammar so that I can use this knowledge if I am able to travel to Spanish speaking countries and even in the workforce. This class also greatly helped my ability to present in front of people. I have always been a little shy, so presenting was a scary thought. However, we would present almost on a weekly basis in this class, and everyone was really supportive when we would present. In all, this class we definitely improve your Spanish speaking and presentational abilities!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of writing done in this class. Everyday when you come in we have to follow a warm up and write a minimum of two hundred and fifty words. It sounds tough, which it is at first, but it gradually develops your writing abilities so that you may succeed on the tests. Moral of that it to always write your warm ups when given the chance, and do not wait until the day they are due to write them!
