Effective foreign language courses seek to imitate how we learn our native language.
Normal progression: listening, speaking, reading, writing (including spelling).
Foreign language courses are grammar driven, conversation driven or some combination.
Our conversational classes (K-6 and sometimes 7-8) - conversation driven.
Young children who are just learning to read and write in English should participate only with conversational Spanish.
High school, sadly often their first encounter with foreign language study, grammar must be included to fulfill expectations of Spanish I, Spanish II, Spanish III and Spanish IV designations.
