Conversational Spanish: 2nd - 4th & 5th - 8th & 9th - 12th (1 Credit of Foreign Language)

We will bring finer attention to the intricacies of conversation by discussing world events and culture in the target language. Each week, the students will be asked to prepare for class by viewing/listening to/reading, etc. the pre-selected topic-- ranging from a sports article to a Youtube clip to a short film to a meme to a recipe for a meal and beyond-- and prepare notes about the topic so that the class may discuss it together in the target language. There will be very few moments for writing, as we will focus primarily on the goal of conversation. Intermittent sessions for grammar coverage will occur so that the following class period can focus on using the grammar function in conversation. All course material will be available for free via Internet websites or streaming services.

** Required Dictionary: Merriam-Webster's Pocket Spanish-English Dictionary **

**Students will be provided with a foreign language binder for the year to organize their classwork and complete their homework.**

Latin: 5th - 8th & 9th - 12th (1 Credit of Foreign Language)

This class will use the classic Wheelock's Latin textbook to broaden our understanding of four areas: 1) how Latin affects and appears in our modern usage of language; 2) how Latin is used in many academic areas-- including the natural and social sciences at large, as well as literature, history, culinary skills, theater, music performance, et cetera.-- in the hope that some students go into any of those fields ; 3) how the institution of language operates through a linguistic lens, and; 4) the ancient world study of literature, culture, politics, and history.

** The 7th edition of Wheelock's Latin is required for the class, as we will be covering the first 20 chapters and using the in-chapter exercises as homework for translating practice. **
