¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español!

Welcome to Spanish class! Señorita Suttell

Course Description/Objective

In accordance with the Arizona World Language Standards, our goal is to have students build proficiency in three modes of communication; interpersonal (person-to-person speaking and writing), interpretive (listening and reading), and presentational (one-way speaking and writing). In addition to communication, we include the study of Spanish speaking countries to advance students cultural competencies.

Our classes 1A and 1B work together as the equivalent to a Beginner Level Spanish class in high school. We are able to move at a slower pace and include extra practice as students become more comfortable with the language. 1A Vocabulary will  include but is not limited to the following; greetings, introductions, expressing likes, describing others, clothing, family, giving dates, expressing possession, describing classes and the classroom, discuss obligations, how often you do something, talk about schedules, ask questions, say where you re going, discuss plans, talk about places and people you know, extend invitations, express feelings, say what just happened, talk about sports, make comparisons, describe the weather and what is happening. 1B Vocabulary will include but is not limited to the following; identify places, give addresses, choose transportation, give instructions, talk about shopping, make purchases, order and talk about food, express extremes, say where you went, describe your daily routine, discuss daily chores, say what people are doing, persuade others, describe a house, plan a party and describe past activities.

Most importantly have fun! ¡Diviértete!

Sobre Mí (About Me)

Born and raised “en la isla del encanto” Puerto Rico, I learned to love the Spanish language and Latin American culture at an early age. I earned my Master’s Degree in Education from NAU and have been teaching Spanish in Arizona for 10 years. I enjoy sharing my passion for being bilingual and seeing young minds develop, be successful at something new and realize the value of knowing a second language.

                                                                                            
                                             Me gustan mucho las playas de Puerto Rico.
