QCACS offers a Spanish course for each grade level k-9.
All students will be able to use a world language in addition to English to engage in meaningful conversation, to understand
and interpret spoken and written language, and to present information, concepts, and ideas, while also gaining an understanding of the
perspectives of other cultures. Through language study, they will make connections with other content areas, compare the language and
culture studied with their own, and participate in home and global communities.
Scholars learn how to read, write and pronounce words in Spanish as well as translate common vocabulary words and phrases. Students learn how to count upwards of 100, recite the days of the week and the 12 months. Students learn colors in Spanish and begin to conjugate verbs such as comer (to eat), hablar (to talk), bailar (to dance) and beber (to drink).
As the students progress through this world language course, they are more familiar with words and phrases. This allows scholars to hold conversations only speaking in Spanish. Basic dialogue includes asking to go to the bathroom, asking what time it is and asking classmates what activity they are doing. Students also learn how to describe people, places and animals using Spanish adjectives.
