Flueny:

Fluency – Will my child be fluent at the end of 8th or 9th grade?

When learning our first language, we become what we would call fluent at about 5 years old. If you are awake 14 hours a day, 365 days a year, for 5 years, that is over 25,000 hours of listening, speaking, experiencing that language in every imaginable context. Our students get 39 hours a year at best. At the end of their time in our K-8 school, if they are NEVER absent, NEVER have a snow day, NEVER have a field trip or assembly that interrupts Spanish, then they will have 312 hours. That is the rough equivalent of less than a month in their first language. Considering that reality is it not truly astounding what they can say and do in the target language? I am so impressed with my students every day when I think of this.

This is why practice at home can be so beneficial to all students of Spanish.

The lessons we cover (in the form of Power points, flashcards, and on-line games); homework; classwork and stories will be posted on my personal website:
