    Western Alamance High School

     

    This Spring we will begin the study of Spanish 1, and your child will be learning to use the language in daily exercises and activities that practice four skills: speaking, listening, writing, and reading. We will be studying technical terms of grammar, syntax, and parts of speech; learning sentence structure and composition; and reading a variety of printed materials.
