Through a variety of activities, students will increase their reading, writing, listening, comprehension, and speaking abilities. Students will also continue to have exposure many other areas such as geography, history, music, and art as they pertain to the Spanish language and culture. The Realidades I textbook and workbook are very user friendly and comprehensive. Additional online activities will be provided. Everyone will be expected to speak Spanish as much as possible.

Tutor: Sue Welsh has a B.A. in Spanish and a M.A. in Secondary Education. Sue has been with CHAT since 2006. She has spent extended time in both Spain and Mexico. In her 32 years of teaching, she has taught in public, private, homeschool and corporate settings. She believes in a very interactive approach to teaching Spanish. She also believes strongly in lifelong learning, and providing students with the tools to continue their own learning once they leave the classroom.

This approach creates a challenging but comfortable environment for students to experiment with the language.
