Spanish as a World Language

  • World Spanish is offered to all K-6 students. Sra. Yurcak, a native speaker originally from Guatemala, sees students for 20-30 minutes twice a week engaging them through music, movement, stories, culture and critical thinking using over 90% Spanish during class. This program allows students to meet the following goals:

    • Develop basic oral proficiency with a focus on real life speaking and listening
    • Gain an appreciation of cultures different from their own
    • Feel confident about learning a new World Language
