Quest Montessori Spanish
In the Language Program, Spanish is the “target” language which provides the core of second-language instruction at Quest. Spanish language is introduced in its cultural context in the classroom. The Spanish instructor works closely with the classroom teachers to make meaningful connections for the children between the current curricular topics and the Spanish work. The intent of the program is exposure to language and culture as a means for “communicative competence”.
The basis of our Spanish program is to facilitate the understanding of culture and language by listening, understanding/comprehending, and expressing. Students benefit from repetition interwoven in different activities while expanding their vocabulary, reinforced later to follow up on comprehending and practice their expressions in Spanish
Qualified native speaking instructors provide our Spanish language skills instruction. The lesson is delivered with a dual language approach whereby each student develops a familiarity with the language through context.
