Welcome to the Spanish Classroom
Bienvedinos al salon de espanol!
Hola! Mi nombre es Dr. Driscoll. Tengo el placer de ensenar espanol este ano.
Welcome to another set of fun-field learning experiences in the Spanish classroom. The past two years have been very fruitful. We have increased our command of the vocabulary, conversational forms and written expression. We have also been making inroads into our listening skills in the language.
Although we cannot achieve total immersion by living in a country that speaks Spanish, we have tried partial immersion through songs, play, conversational opportunities, the annual “Dia de Mercado” where student take a make-believe shopping trip to a Spanish speaking country, and language lab sessions with a computer product “Immersion”.
The use of “Immersion” in our language lab session has been quite successful. This year we have added a set of “Rosetta Stone” for the language lab sessions.
With both “Immersion” and “Rosetta Stone” we will widen our vocabulary and increase our command of listening skills, as well as written and conversational skills in the Spanish language. The two products will also help us get the correct accents from the native speakers that the students listen to during lab time.
I will leave you with pictures of some fun stuff students do in the Spanish classroom and the “Dia de Mercado”.
