¿Te gusta aprender español?

From their first year in Spanish class, Lower School students learn to ask questions:  What is your name? Where do you live? How do you feel today? By incorporating basic vocabulary with simple grammatical structures, students begin practicing conversation and making connections.

Speaking and listening are at the heart of the Lower School Spanish curriculum. Through games and songs, students expand their vocabulary. By listening to stories and answering questions, they develop language skills in an authentic context. Cultural study combines history, art, and stories to introduce students to celebrations and holidays from the Day of the Dead to Cesar Chavez Day. By integrating all these elements into a cohesive program, Lower School Spanish at RMDS creates a foundation for lifelong language study.
