About 40% of Los Angeles County residents speak Spanish. Would you like to be among them?

Everyone who lives in Los Angeles hears Spanish spoken and sees Spanish signs. In the Spanish 1 elective at Palms, you can begin learning the four basic Spanish communication skills:

  • Speaking
  • Listening
  • Reading
  • Writing

This elective is not recommended if Spanish is your primary language.

High School and Beyond

A year of foreign language is a requirement to graduate from high school.

To be eligible for state colleges and universities, you must take 2 years of the same language, with 3 recommended for University for California admission.

By taking Spanish 1 in middle school you earn foreign language credit and will be ready to take Spanish 2 in high school.
