LANGUAGES
  • At I.M. Terrell’s Department of World Languages, students will have the opportunity to develop insight into the nature of language through comparing English and Spanish. As well as comparing many cultures with Spanish–speaking cultures. Courses are designed to allow students to acquire and expand their lexicon in the target language. At the end of Spanish Pre-AP 1, students are expected to reach Novice Mid to Novice High Proficiency Level.

    * Novice Mid students can communicate by using memorized words and phrases. They are best able to understand aural cognates, borrowed words, and high-frequency, highly contextualized words and phrases with repetition.

    * Novice High students express meaning in simple, predictable contexts through the use of learned, recombined phrases and short sentences. At the end of Spanish Pre-AP 2, students are expected to reach a level of Novice High to Intermediate Low Proficiency Level.

    * Novice High students express meaning in simple, predictable contexts through the use of learned, recombined phrases and short sentences.

    * Intermediate Low students can express meaning in straightforward and personal contexts, by combining and recombining what they know, what they read, and what they hear in short statements and sentences; they will be able to understand some information from simple connected statements in oral or written sources. Our goal is to provide an environment that nurtures our own ability to learn a new language,
