In the teaching of the Spanish language, we know that it is not only assuring that students know the grammatical concepts and vocabulary, but also ensuring that the students understand the cultural references and connections. It is this way that students are able to fully involve themselves in the language and become life-long learners.
The Unit, “Encuentro entre culturas”, fuses the Spanish culture with the united states, depicting some of the beautiful architectural influences that have been fused to our own.
In this Unit, students will be able to describe how different cultures interact, and be able to understand cultural perspectives of different ethnic groups in the United States and the cultural diversity in the Spanish-Speaking world.
