Based on the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning, the Journeys School approach to foreign language learning focuses on communication, cultures, comparisons, connections and communities. Thematic instruction is an integral part of early language learning at Journeys School. It helps to create a relevant learning environment in the elementary foreign language classroom. Elementary students explore specific themes while developing cognitive skills which tie directly to other academic areas and help reinforce the goals of the elementary curriculum. Lessons encompass geography, math, music, art, social studies, physical education and Latino culture. Learning is spiraling in nature so that students build their listening skills and become increasingly independent in their use of written and spoken Spanish.
