Testamonials: Spanish II

"The coolest thing about taking Spanish II is getting to delve into, and really learn about a diverse set of cultures and customs. Not only that, but Spanish has helped me with English as well. You have to be able to know and comprehend different parts of speech and grammar rules. It's really satisfying when you're out-and-about and are able to recognize and understand words that aren't your first language."

Isabella Winkler- Class of 2018

"Spanish II was challenging at times, but I had a lot of fun learning about the Spanish-speaking countries and their cultures. Mrs. Ramirez wants you to think she's mean, but she's actually very funny and is only strict at times because she cares. Ask her about her jokes."

Kaley- Class of 2018

"Mrs. Ramirez and her teachings in the basics of Spanish have helped me to better understand the complexity of the language. Taking this Spanish II course has also assisted me in communicating with other people as well. I know I will use the knowledge I have gained in this class in the future and I hope to advance to higher levels in the years that follow. I love the Spanish language."

Jordyn Lassiter- Class of 2017

"Spanish II has benefited me in a number of ways. For instance, it provides perspective and insight into many Spanish speaking countries. These cultures and rich and full of color. Language builds bridges and creates connections between people across the world. Spanish is comparatively less complicated than some other languages, and it helps facilitate the learning of other Romantic languages as well. Overall, my Spanish class was a great experience that I enjoyed very much."

Testamonials: Spanish III

"This class has been fun and I learned a lot about my Spanish heritage. The good thing is anyone can be in Spanish III and up, you don't have to speak the language to learn Spanish. You also get to participate with people who speak the Spanish language which helps you improve faster."

Jahsiel- Class of 2019

"Spanish III has helped me learn more about my language and become more confident in speaking it."

Grace- Class of 2018

"Spanish III is one of my favorite classes. I like that it's more of an independent study class. You do most of the work by yourself and you can correct most of the work yourself. I think you get to learn more because you get to see the mistakes you made and you get to correct them on your own. It's a more personalized way to learn and it's a breath of fresh air compared to most other classes."
