Learning the Spanish Language


¡Hola!  A todos

It is very exciting to show some of the learning that happens in the Spanish classroom.

All classes learn different themes.  This year they are using a site called Rockalingua, that helps us practice the language through fun and engagment in learning.

Here is a showcase of some students and their impressions about the learning of the Spanish language.
