¡Bienvenidos a la Clase de Español Dos con Profesora Wheaton!
Language learning is exciting, challenging, frustrating, and incredibly rewarding. I look forward to partnering with you this year as you explore the language and culture of Spanish speaking peoples. Our class will focus on the 5 C's of language acquisition: communication, culture, connections, comparisons, and communities.
You will build upon your communication skills through speaking, listening, writing, and reading in meaningful contexts. We will study and celebrate the many cultures of Spanish speaking peoples. We will integrate and connect knowledge you already have with what we are learning in class. You will compare your own language and culture with Spanish/Spanish speaking cultures through activities and discussions. Finally, you will gain a deeper understanding of what it means to live in a global community through listening to native speakers, cultural activities, and other experiences.

I went to Thailand to do community work in college, and had the opportunity to get up close with an elephant!
