BIENVENIDOS CLASSROOM 2019/2020 My name is Mr. JULIO C OSPINA. I am from Bogota, Colombia, South America, so Spanish is my first language. I am very happy to be part of this great community at Fairmont High School. I am navigate the 21 st century with the new North Carolina Essential Standards World Languages.
To speak Spanish, you need just two things:
1. You need to know the words that make up the language (the vocabulary)
2. You need to know the rules for putting those words together (the grammar)
Learn the grammar and the vocabulary, and you can form an infinite number of sentences and say whatever you want!
Step 1: Short dailyvideo lessons by a native Spanish speaker
Everyday starts with a set of bite-sized video presentations (usually adding up to just 3 or 4 minutes in length) where a native Spanish speaking professor show you the grammar concept for the day. I am using a smart board , typing and handwriting the presentation in real-time so that it feels like you're watching and hearing teach in an actual classroom.
Step 2: Fun and easy new vocabulary to Learn
Classwork is the better way of memorizing new vocabulary and our native language uses them to quickly familiarize you with the day’s vocab list. It first starts with the easy vocabulary you’ll both see and hear each of the words and reinforce the knowledge by repeating and writing them. It then progresses on to the more challenging .
Step 3: Hands-on grammar practice with the Grammar
The new grammar and applying the three RRR Students go on the vocabulary. Our grammar allows you to drag and drop words to construct sentences. You don't have to know the vocabulary off the top of your head, but you will definitely need to know the grammar--how to conjugate the verbs, what pronouns and articles to use, matching the adjectives to agree with their nouns, and the other little details involved in properly constructing sentences in Spanish. En Español is the only course that is fully integrated with the material on this Class. Reading, Writing, Listening are the strategies, By combining Spanish grammar exercises with real conversational practice, you will much more quickly reach a level where you can communicate effectively.
