Students at St. Katharine Drexel Catholic School study Spanish in grades Pre-K-8. They build on foundations of basic vocabulary and conversational phrases by singing songs, listening actively and role-playing. State of the art technology facilitates language acquisition as oral and auditory skills are reinforced with engaging learning software. Curricula focus on improving students’ written, oral, and auditory skills through a variety of spoken and written activities and experiences. Students also learn each year about the foods, customs, and celebrations from various Spanish-speaking countries around the world.
