We are continuing to review key some key verbs and verb tenses, as well as working on our third unit: Legends.  The students are also continuing to reflect on the Spanish conquest of the Americas, and will soon watch a film that addresses that very topic.  Of course, everything we do in class is in the Spanish language.  The students also continue to enjoy the Mexican telenovela, "La madrastra" ("The Stepmother").  The trailer for the series is at the bottom of this page.


SPANISH V (Period 8)

We are continuing to review key some key verbs and verb tenses, as well as working on our third unit: Legends.  The students are also continuing to reflect on the Spanish conquest of the Americas, and will soon watch a film that addresses that very topic.  Of course, everything we do in class is in the Spanish language.  The students also continue to enjoy the Mexican telenovela, "La madrastra" ("The Stepmother") and the online series from Spain, "Mi vida loca" ("My Crazy Life").  The trailer for both series are at the bottom of this page.
