Spanish

Students at MSA are required to take Spanish from sixth grade through eleventh grade. The purpose of this six year program is to form a strong basis of the Spanish language. The learning includes grammar, vocabulary, writing, literature, conversation, and culture. Students will leave MSA with a strong background in Spanish to help them in their college studies. Students who would like to pursue college Spanish placement testing will be well prepared. Students who are new to MSA and have not taken any Spanish courses, will be scheduled into Beginning Spanish. Also, students who need to go at a slower pace will be scheduled into Basic Spanish. As the student(s) progress, he/ she may be moved to another level of Spanish.
