Schools in Latin America are a little different from schools in Canada. Most private and public schools require students to wear a uniform. They have a sport uniform and an academic uniform. On school days, parents usually drop their children off; school buses are not as popular there. Due to the hot weather, many classrooms have either a fan or air conditioning.
Today, you will learn some school vocabulary.

Escuela (ehs-kweh-lah)
This is the word for school. If you want to say “Let’s go to school” you can say “Vamos a la escuela.”

Clase (klah-seh)
This word is very similar in English. It means “class.” You can also say “Vamos a clase” in order to say “Let’s go to class.”

Salón de Clase (sah-lohn deh klah-seh)
When talking about a “classroom,” you can say “Salón de clase.”
