At High Tech High this is my first time sharing a Spanish classroom setting where students have different levels of comfort ability with speaking the language. I was placed under "advanced" as far as my Spanish speaking, reading, and writing skills go, this meant that my peers who struggle with the language can always reach out to me for help or questions and I could put my abilities to practice.
Before high school I was a student in a elementary and middle school where half of my classes were in Spanish and the other in English. This got me used to taking quizzes, writing essays, and presenting in both languages. Not only has being bilingual in a classroom been a big part of who I am as a student and person, being fluent in the languages follows me at home. Communicating and interacting with my immediate and distant family in Spanish is one of the most important parts of my culture.
As the end of my Sophomore year approaches I hope to continue challenging my Spanish language skills and expanding my vocabulary.
