Spanish for Spanish-Speaking Students.
Fuentes, Irma; And Others
This curriculum bulletin, completely in Spanish, is intended to serve as a guide to teaching Spanish and the culture of Spain and the Latin-American countries to students who come from Spanish-speaking homes. The bulletin presents an accelerated course of study for the first year and includes the vocabulary idiomatic expressions, and structures prescribed for Levels 1 and 2 in the "New York City Foreign Language Program for Secondary Schools: Spanish, Levels 1-5." In addition to developing the four communication skills, the course aims at refining and improving the student's knowledge of Spanish by enriching his vocabulary, perfecting his pronunciation, eliminating errors in syntax, and discouraging anglicisms. In the sections on Spanish and Latin-American culture, emphasis is placed on Puerto Rico and its history. A vocabulary list, bibliography, and appendix containing cultural materials are included.
