¡Bienvenidos a la clase de Español !
Me llamo Lidia Thompson, but you can call me
I want to welcome you to my class. I know that we will have a great year working together.
There is certain information that you need to know to make your learning process work more efficiently and your learning experiences more enjoyable.
Our goal for this class is to learn as much as possible and apply the learned material.
Language is for communication and we will use speaking, reading and writing skills in order to communicate in Spanish.
In order to properly learn we must follow the classroom rules and student/teacher expectations.
In order to achieve our learning goals we must work as a team.
Everything we do in class will be focused in achieving these goals. If you need to contact me at the school, my school e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
