Señora Garcia from IES Languages teaches our Spanish classes at Holy Spirit School every Tuesday and Thursday.
Grades kindergarten to the fourth grade focus on conversational Spanish and vocabulary. The fifth through the eighth grades are introduced to grammar, vocabulary, and spoken and written Spanish. IES methods recreate a process of language acquisition which is similar to the way children learn their primary language. IES teaches through games, poems, songs and activities, by focusing on listening and speaking first. Reading and writing come later with further language study.
