Course Catalog ID:
Subject Categories:
Global Language

Spanish 1A is the first of a two year course covering the material for high school Spanish 1. This is a custom-designed program that integrates grammar, vocabulary, culture, pronunciation and comprehension at a manageable pace. It is a highly-interactive, multifaceted, systematic approach to developing a solid foundation in spoken and written Spanish. The homework includes vocabulary activities, reading, cultural elements, grammar drills, audio comprehension and pronunciation lessons to build a variety of necessary knowledge and skills. During class, the time is dedicated to growing comfortable and proficient in speaking and understanding the kind of practical Spanish that is useful in everyday situations. Students will be encouraged and evaluated during the live class time, and their graded work will include simple written compositions, quizzes, exams, and recorded spoken submissions.

Note: (1) Do you feel that your TPS Spanish 1A student would benefit from more instruction of the material, more time to hone his pronunciation, and more opportunity to practice conversational skills with the teacher and other students? Then don’t miss this opportunity to turn your one-session-a-week Spanish course into a two-session-a-week course by adding Spanish Conversations for Spanish 1A to your Spanish 1A course! This is offered for the spring semester only.

Note: This course may combined in series with Spanish 1B to provide the equivalent of HS Spanish 1 taken over two years for a more relaxed pace and stronger Spanish foundation. The course does not confer any credit without successful completion of Spanish 1B.

Reviews from Students and Parents

“I loved this class. My teacher was amazing! I have always wanted learn another language, and I like that TPS has provided a class were you do one lesson over two weeks. It has been SUPER helpful by giving me more time to learn and understand the content of that week’s lesson. TPS is a great Spanish experience!”
