This is the second half of a two-semester course that began in Fall 2020.

This course is designed to give children their first exposure to Spanish. It will teach them new vocabulary and help them develop conversational skills in Spanish, primarily through the use of simplified selections from Cervantes’s Spanish classic Don Quixote, as developed by Dr. Myriam Borges Thompson. Students will learn Spanish vocabulary, sentence structure, and culture as they read the adventures of the famous Spanish character and his friend Sancho. Spanish will come alive through the fantastic adventures of one of the best-known characters in world literature.
