Foreign Language Courses

Junior High Languages Grades 7 & 8

This one-year Junior High course has no pre-requisite.  It covers the same material as Spanish 1 but with a variation in some activities.  There are also more mission stories which are not only enjoyable but also help the students to see God’s work in other languages and cultures around the world.

Spanish 1

This first level course has no pre-requisite. Students will learn to communicate in both written and oral Spanish. Time is spent acquiring vocabulary to communicate. Some basic grammar is learned but that is not the focus. Actions, song, writing, storytelling, games, lots of practice in pairs and use of the Spanish New Testament are some of the means used to learn the language. Emphasis is also put on becoming mission minded.
