In this class you will be introduced to the beautiful Spanish language. You will learn everyday vocabulary such as family, school, church, shopping, transportation, body parts, the present tense of regular and irregular verbs, several pronouns and adjectives, weather, seasons, days of the week, months, numbers 0 to 100, location words, and be introduced to new interesting cultures and different world views. This class will give you a foundation of the language that, with practice and use, will help you to communicate with Spanish speaking people.

“Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.”
— Psalm 96: 1-3
