Putting Spanish Language in Context in Unit I

Students in Spanish teacher Maria-Fernanda Torres’ class recently applied their growing Spanish vocabulary to reading. The practical application of the words allowed the students to build true literacy in Spanish, said Torres. “The students are learning how to read short sentences in Spanish and we have been focusing on numbers, so the passages they are reading in context are about numbers.” Torres said the exercise will continue to build students’ academic stamina around learning a new language, pronouncing the words, and being able to appropriately apply the words to reading and writing in Spanish.
