• All sixth-grade students receive an Encore rotation of Spanish, and students in Grades 7-8 may choose Spanish as an elective. In seventh grade, Spanish students cover greetings and basic conversational Spanish, people, descriptions, daily activities, sports, food and restaurants, and Latin American countries and culture. In eighth grade, Spanish students discover Hispanic culture through virtual trips to Mexico, Chile, and Argentina, and they learn vocabulary and phrases related to activities at home, sports, going on vacation, purchasing food at restaurants, and shopping at the mall.
