Virtual Spanish Novice High (Winter 2021)
At the Chattanooga School of Language, we teach for proficiency. Our focus is communication in the target language (the language you’re learning). Our teachers use various communicative, comprehension-based instructional strategies to provide our students with an engaging, fun and input-rich learning experience. Read more about the Comprehensible Input (CI) method for language acquisition and what you can expect from a language class with the Chattanooga School of Language.
Novice High is for learners who have spent approximately 120-180 hours in the language. Students at this level are familiar with frequently used expressions and are able to express themselves in some common situations. Review the Proficiency Guidelines for this level and learn what you can do with language at this level of proficiency in terms of speaking, writing, listening, and reading in real-world situations and non-rehearsed context.
This class builds on the skills acquired at the Novice Low and Mid courses and continues to focus on the acquisition of high frequency words (the most frequently used words in a language), common structures and cognates (if applicable in target language). In this class, students will expand their vocabulary and be able to express themselves in everyday situations.
Classes only run when they meet minimum enrollment: Once your class meets minimum enrollment (3 students), then you’ll receive an email from us with information to access your classroom dashboard!
