Mrs. Sharon Koller
¡Bienvenida a las clases de español!
A person’s intellectual, social, cultural, and career horizons will be expanded through world language study. Students will better understand their own language(s) as well as those of others through language and culture study. Students who study a second language will be more marketable in their chosen career (s). The more years of practice and the harder you work at it, the greater the benefits and rewards.
We believe that the World Language department at Schuylkill Valley encourages and motivates the students to develop competency in the world language they aspire to learn. Students shall strive to achieve a balance between accuracy in communication, grammar structures, oral proficiency, active performance activities, and cultural awareness. A comprehensive program of listening, speaking, reading and writing will assure the foundation of the world language. The process of learning the language continually evolves from simple utterances, through the forming of sentences, to the accurate use of all the phases of communication.
