Teaching intermediate preliminary lessons at the beginning of the school year is a good practice even if the students already took Spanish the previous year because it helps to review and reinforce what was learned before and familiarizes the students with concepts and topics that may appear in more advanced courses.
Additionally, these preliminary lessons provide a refresher for some topics, allowing the teacher to give deeper explanations without having to cover basic material that has already been discussed and helps unify the class so that all students are on the same page.
