Have fun this summer while learning and practicing your Spanish! This camp is for entering and current Middle School students who want to build their Spanish language skills, improve speaking confidence, and prepare for their Spanish placement test.
Campers will be encouraged to speak in Spanish throughout the day, actively engaging in listening, writing, and speaking activities through fun activities such as games, singing, outdoor engagements, arts and crafts, and more to reinforce language learning.
Students will build and strengthen their foundation in Spanish grammar. They will learn different study strategies to acquire vocabulary and to prepare for assessments. Not only will students improve their confidence and enhance their Spanish communication skills, they also will be assured a successful and stress-free year in their next Spanish class.
Students can participate in one or two weeks of camp. The second week will build on the learning from the first week.
