Spanish is comprised of a team of teachers from elementary, middle, and high school that has developed a curriculum that will teach students from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Learning to speak Spanish in elementary school has many benefits for the students. It opens up awareness to another culture which allows a student to have a better understanding of the differences and similarities of the language.
Learning to speak Spanish at an early age can help a child succeed throughout his or her life. The student could develop a talent for linguistic skills that could benefit learning not only Spanish but other languages later on. Spanish in MSES also brings the opportunity to learn cultural dances, songs, games, dramas and life in Latin America. Bringing language along with culture teaches the students that there is a whole world out there and being open to new languages, cultures & ideas can enhance their view of how they fit into society.
