Kindergarten - 8th grade
Students learn and practice new vocabulary, basic sentence structure, pronunciation, and culture of Spanish-speaking countries through the use of music, games, reading, conversation, and more. All classes utilize the interactive white board for audio-visual instruction. Kindergarten through sixth grade students participate in the Bob Jones University Press curriculum, Pasaporte al Español. Seventh and eighth grade students use an interactive video drama and Spanish course called Mi Vida Loca. This curriculum takes you on an intriguing mystery adventure to Madrid, covering basic learning points for Spanish beginners to prepare for greater mastery of the language.
