Wesley Prep believes that students should be given the opportunity to study a language other than English to gain awareness, appreciation, understanding, and respect for other cultures in order to better participate in a global community. To these ends, our Spanish program focuses on the acquisition of the ability to communicate in meaningful and appropriate ways with users of the Spanish language.
The Wesley Prep Spanish curriculum is aligned with the national and state standards based on communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities. The program follows the natural sequence of language learning: listening, speaking, reading, and writing in a cultural context.
For Kindergarten through sixth grade, Spanish is taught in the classroom twice per week by a teacher fluent in the language. The QTalk method of language instruction is used with Kindergarten and Primer students.
The ¡Viva el Español! Sytems A and B are used with first through fourth grade students. The "Realidades" Book A is used with fifth and sixth grade students. All systems are complimented with songs, videos, games, art, presentations, and other activities that appeal to children.
