Marlen Tong, M.

I have been with the Capistrano Unified School District for 20 years.  I started my career at Aliso Niguel and after five years transferred to Tesoro.  After being at Tesoro for four years I decided to join SJHHS as a member of the original planning committee.  I have taught Spanish I through Spanish IV AP.  This year I am teaching Two-way Immersion Spanish III, Spanish I and AP Spanish IV Language and Culture.  Please feel free to contact me at

Writing, Audio, and Video Workbook Information Sp. I

Although not a requirement for class, I strongly recommend and encourage students to purchase the Realidades Writing, Audio, & Video Workbook. This workbook will be used almost daily in my class. It is used for listening comprehension as well as writing activities. Students who can write in their own workbook find it a convenience and a great aid to learning and studying. I've found that students who do not have a WAV, many times don't do the activity (they find it bothersome to copy the information from the projector screen or class workbook). The workbook can be purchased from (ISBN #0-13-116463-5 for Level 1 (Spanish I).  This is a combo Practice Workbook/Writing, Audio, and Visual workbook. I assign the Practice Workbook pages as worksheets on School Loop. Again, this is not a requirement for the class. It is only a recommendation.
