Wellspring Community Classes

In the United States over 38 million people speak Spanish and in the world over 400 million speak Spanish as their primary language in 21 different countries and on 4 continents. It is becoming increasingly important to know the language for many vocations including business, medicine and education. The earlier a student starts with foreign language instruction the more proficient they will become and the easier it will be to learn the language.

Wellspring Community Classes:

Middle School Spanish (Grades 5-8) Middle School Spanish, taught by Peter Weeks (Senior Pastor at Our Redeemer Lutheran) meets for 1 hour on Tuesdays at First Church of the Nazarene. This course is for students with little to no prior experience with the language. 15-20 mins/day of homework will need to be completed outside of class each week. Students will use online resources as well interaction in class to gain conversational skill and vocabulary.

High School Spanish (Grades 8-12) High School Spanish, taught by Peter Weeks (Senior Pastor at Our Redeemer Lutheran) meets for 1 hour on Tuesdays at First Church of the Nazarene. Students who complete this course (both semesters, Fall/Spring) will have completed an equivalent to a foreign language credit. This is a fast-paced class and 20-30 mins/day of homework will need to be completed outside of class each week. We will use the text Avancemos 1 (by McDougal Littell) and the accompanying student workbook, Cuaderno Practica Por Niveles.

From time to time, Wellspring also offers upper level Spanish course along with many other courses. Check out the Facebook page for more information on how to sign up: https://www.facebook.com/wellspringtwincitiesIL/
