Welcome to Spanish! Over the coming months, you will have the opportunity to begin your journey toward learning a new language. While becoming fluent in a language takes many years, learning a new language has the opportunity to open a whole new world to you; by doing so, you will have the opportunity to make new friends, learn more about our global environment, and become better prepared for the future. By the end of the year, it is anticipated that you will have the ability to use hundreds of words and phrases. In addition, you will gain a better appreciation of the Hispanic culture, and you will gain a basic understanding of grammatical themes, even in English.
