What to expect in class

The Spanish classroom will look and feel different every day! Students NEED to participate daily in the SPANISH language!  I do not appreciate an English response to a Spanish question.  We will do a lot of speaking, writing, listening, acting, singing, and practicing. The one rule in class that is not negotiable is- no one laughs at other's mistakes.  For most people in class, Spanish is new, and it takes time to get use to hearing it and speaking it. ***No matter what the homework is, I expect students will practice the vocabulary OUT LOUD every night for 10 minutes!! It could be going over flashcards, practicing verb conjugation, having a conversation..... the options are endless, but it is very important!
