Spanish is an essential part of the curriculum for our 4th through 8th grade students.
The Spanish Class is an amazing way to learn not just the language but enhance the Latin American Culture. Speaking Spanish will open the door to a rich, gorgeous and historically important culture.
While learning, Spanish takes a lot of practice, hard work and dedication, the learning process helps you expand your attention spans and creates a stronger working memory. These skills are transferable to other aspects of life and it has been said that once you become bilingual it’s like a mental workout and you become stronger.
Being bilingual is considered an incredible skill for individuals. This applies both to their personal and professional lives.
At Saint James we have our “Club de Espanol” (Spanish Club) that is an active club that encourages the development of Spanish language skills and the understanding of the Hispanic Culture. The club will participate in many activities throughout the year, including dances, and special events, such as "El día de los muertos" and "El día de las Américas".
