What's going on in Spanish class?

Winter break and the week after

I hope you all have a nice break and safe travels if you're travelling. It's a good idea to study your vocabulary during break and practice conjugating because it's not going anywhere.


When we come back from break we'll review our final exam results and start unit 4.2 (school life). I will update Quizlet early in case anyone wants to get a head start on our next unit.


See you next year!

How can I help my student with Spanish class?
