The Spanish program is a proficiency-based program that immerses the students in the language from the first day. Students are expected to participate and stay in the target language 100% of the time while in class. By immersing themselves in Spanish, students begin to learn the natural way and are encouraged to speak as often as possible, embracing errors as an expected part of learning a language. Teachers provide comprehensible input, scaffolded activities, games, music, physical activity, guided readings and community building activities to create an error-tolerant environment for students to learn to take safe risks with the target language. Spanish teachers at IACS use the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines to guide a largely teacher prepared curriculum that supports student growth.
