Foreign Language

Faith offers up to four years of Spanish, with the first two years required for graduation. These classes go beyond the vocabulary and grammar of the Spanish language, incorporating faith and culture as well. All students use Spanish in practical Christian disciplines, such as memorizing Scriptures and learning the “Romans Road” in Spanish, beginning to pray and worship in Spanish, and attending a Spanish church service. They also must eat at a Hispanic restaurant, watch Spanish-language films, and write a report. They study famous Hispanics and cultures of Spanish-speaking countries, including planning “trips” to various cities. In upper levels, students will also work on a year long project.
