Gracia senor.

I am 60 years old and I am retiring from teaching
at the end of this year. I am just learning Spanish
now for the first time.

My goal is to go on our church's mission trips to
Latin America to build new churches !! smile

Again.....................Gracias amigo !!

It's sometimes interesting to see how the Traslator renders a sentence. It came up with:

Enseño matemáticas de octavo grado.

Doesn't sound bad, but I don't know if that's how it's commonly expressed. And there's a rule about whether or not to use the definite article with school subjects that doesn't come to my mind at the moment.

Seems the translator is smarter than I am. You do not use the definite article with academic subjects as shown at the site above.

I suggest waiting for a native speaker. I sure he will want to use the word "nivel" or change the syntax.

Well... those translators had to get a sentence right eventually, if only by chance, hehe.
