Spanish 1

This course is designed to teach the student Spanish grammar and to develop the student’s ability to express himself both in writing and speaking the Spanish language.

Course Description

This course teaches skills for developing a Spanish vocabulary; learning and applying standard Spanish grammar and composition rules to writing effective sentences and paragraphs; and developing thoughts and ideas logically in Spanish so as to become an effective writer and speaker.

Course Expectations

Students taking this course for Kolbe Core (K) credit are expected to complete daily assignments, periodic exams and quizzes.  Kolbe Honors (H) students will go into more depth and cover more material than the Kolbe Core (K) students.

Assignment due-dates and grades are established by the parent.  Optionally, a student may be enrolled in the Self-Paced Plus© grading assistance program to receive grading assistance from a Kolbe Academy faculty or staff member on designated assignments in the course. In this case, parents will still submit final grades to Kolbe for the course, but may choose to incorporate the graded assignments into the student’s overall grade or use the Kolbe-graded assignments to assist in arriving at the student’s final grade.
