I'm retired and didn't teach foreign language in my recent teaching assignments. However, like any cumulative subject, some review will be necessary. It simply isn't reasonable to expect people to remember everything they knew 3 months later.

If you try to save time by skipping reviews, you and the students will all be frustrated.

One thought would be to take the first day or two slow, with your speaking Spanish and expecting them to follow instructions, but perhaps now speak or write yet. Tune up those ears.

Then as you plan lessons, try to think what previous knowledge is required and include reminders and practice that will help students recall the vocabulary or the difference between ar and er verbs. Or whatever they will be needing that day.
