Horn Welcome   It is exciting  to offer 3 years of conversational Spanish at FBCS high school – Spanish I utilizes a basic approach to the language with Christian curriculum from BJU.  The interactive DESTINOS telecourse. Is used in Spanish II and III by which the students travel to the 4 major Spanish speaking areas of the world and develop listening comprehension as they follow the Destinos storyline involving a variety of Spanish speakers, learning vocabulary and grammar, developing  writing and conversational skills, and learning  some history/culture about each of these 4 areas of the Spanish speaking world.

Spanish is an enjoyable, interactive experience for the students and includes World Language Days at the MN Zoo and various cultural experiences on and off-site.  The USA is the 2nd largest Spanish speaking country in the world! The purpose of Spanish is to draw the students into the rewarding experience of learning of another language and culture!
