Our State Certified Spanish teachers use "Rider Classroom Spanish," which is a proven, "virtual classroom," distance learning program that consists of “synchronous” and “asynchronous” instruction:  

~    An “actual” Certified Spanish teacher interacting with the students in the classroom via the internet on a daily basis.

~  A "Moodle, virtual classroom" where students can access lessons, listening activities, along with their quizzes and tests. 

~   And, a highly effective DVD program designed by foreign language teachers combined with a wide variety of additional materials to cover all the state and national standards for the first two years of foreign language instruction. 

What is covered in this distance learning program?

    1.   Correct pronunciation of Spanish, the alphabet, and the phonetic nature of the language
    2.   Participation in basic dialogue on various general "life" and "survival" Spanish

We keep in mind the Profession's goal of : Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities, and everything else that should be covered in Spanish 1 and Spanish 2!

In summary, not only do we meet state and national standards for the first two years of foreign language instruction, we focus on the "everyday" speech that the students will be able to use long after graduation from high school.  This means we teach practical and relevant language the students need for real-life situations.
