Even if students have already taken Spanish in the past two years, it’s recommended starting with advanced preliminary lessons during the first weeks of the school year since it serves as a refresher for them and reinforces what they already know.
It also gives teachers an opportunity to assess each student’s current level of understanding, as well as to see which concepts need more attention or review. Furthermore, it sets expectations for the rest of the school year and ensures that all students are ready to jump into new material and information. Finally, it shows students that their language skills are valuable and important even after leaving one Spanish class and before starting a new one.
