Spanish 7 Syllabus

                                              Pam Connell

Spanish 7 is the first half of Spanish I.  In this class, we continue to emphasize communication skills, pronounce words and sentences by imitating the teacher or technologically delivered material.  We learn to ask and answer questions to obtain information, make simple sentences of description, read and write basic sentences and paragraphs as well as listen and respond to sentences and brief passages.


If you receive a grade lower than a 70% on a summative assessment, you should meet with the instructor for review and clarification of the information.  At that time a date will be set for retakes.  You can only earn up to the 70%.
